The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has rescheduled the adjudicatory hearing regarding Republic Wind LLC’s application to construct a wind-powered electric generation facility in Seneca and Sandusky counties.
The adjudicatory hearing, previously set to begin on June 10, is now scheduled for June 3 in Columbus.
The purpose of the adjudicatory hearing is to allow formal parties to the case to present pre-filed testimony and evidence and to cross-examine other parties’ witnesses. The OPSB rescheduled the adjudicatory hearing in response to a motion filed by a group of local residents, who are a party to the case, to revise the procedural schedule.
The change will not affect the local public hearing scheduled for May 14. The purpose of the local hearing is to allow interested persons who are not parties to the case to provide testimony regarding the project.
As proposed, Apex Clean Energy’s Republic Wind Farm would consist of up to 50 wind turbines in Adams, Reed, Scipio and Thompson townships in Seneca County and York Township in Sandusky County. The wind farm would have a total generating capacity of up to 200 MW.
