A wind turbine developer, that now has state approval for a two-phased project in Champaign County, plans to submit a project in southern Hardin County and northern Logan County.
Jason Dagger with EverPower Wind Holdings’ 129 S. Main St. office in Bellefontaine said application for a 300 megawatt industrial wind turbine will be submitted to the Ohio Power Siting Board within 90 days.

He reviewed the plans with the Logan County Commissioners on Tuesday, the same day the OPSB approved the second phase of the Buckeye Wind Project.
The approval, barring a reversal by the OPSB or action by the Ohio Supreme Court, clears the way for EverPower to put up around 100 turbines across 13,000 acres of private leased land east of Urbana.
Mr. Dagger told the commissioners the plans for the Hardin/Logan project are similar in that, depending on the generating capacity of the individual turbines, it will take 100 to 150 turbines to generate 300 megawatts of power.
