Company Suspends Its Seneca County Wind Farm Project

Plans for a wind power farm in Seneca County appear to be dead.

The developer decided against refiling an application for the Seneca Wind project, saying its resources will be better spent in another state.

More than 75 wind turbines were planned with the potential to produce electricity for 60,000 homes.

The company, sPower, says the project would have contributed more than $3 million annually to the local economy, while providing approximately 250 temporary construction jobs and 10 to 15 permanent positions.

The county commission rejected the project last year amid concerns from residents about noise and property values.
