If there are no snags, construction of a wind farm in northeast Allen County will start in the summer 2018 and its turbines will begin generating electricity by late spring 2019. The Register reports that it will occur if the county’s planning commissioners recommend a zoning variance to permit the wind farm, and county commissioners agree. Planners will meet the evening of Oct. 26 to consider the next step.
