Tipton County Declares Moratorium on New Wind Farms

TIPTON, Ind. (AP) _ A central Indiana county has issued a moratorium on new wind farms just weeks after it gave the go-ahead to a proposed $300 million wind farm.
Tipton County Commissioners voted Monday to suspend acceptance of new zoning applications for wind farms through Oct. 1 or until the county's ordinance that sets restrictions on wind farms is amended.
The Kokomo Tribune reports the moratorium won't affect zoning officials' approval for juwi Wind's plans for up to 94 wind turbines capable of generating up to 150 megawatts of power.
Zoning officials last month set two conditions for the development of the Prairie Breeze Wind Farm: a setback of 1,500 from property lines and development of a property value guarantee for non-participating landowners.
