Wind company seeks permit for meteorological towers

Posted in Government

PRESTON - The same company that developed the 100 MW Grand Meadow Wind Farm in Mower County is seeking a conditional use permit to put up two meteorological testing towers in Fillmore County. enXco (pronounced en-ex-co), which develops, operates and manages wind-energy projects throughout the United States, has applied for two conditional use permits which will be discussed at the Fillmore County Planning & Zoning Commission meeting on Thursday, November 15.

One 60 foot meteorological tower would be erected on property owned by Richard Berg in Section 19 of Harmony Township, four miles west of Harmony; a second tower would be installed on property owned by Robert and Carol Miller in Section 18 of Bristol Township, approximately 10 miles west of Harmony.

"Measuring wind speed is the first step in determining feasibility," Kate Ihrke, project manager for enXco, told the Journal.

Irhke said that typically enXco would measure data for a three to five year period before making decisions on further development. She said that testing on the Grand Meadow project began in 2002.

enXco held an informational meeting in Harmony in September to discuss the project with area landowners. Irhke said that enXco will be interested in obtaining property rights associated with this project.

Also on the November 15 agenda:

• Curt Roverud has applied for a Rock Quarry conditional use permit on land in Harmony Township.

• Terry Fetterly has applied for a conditional use permit to operate a restaurant and bar on land zoned commercial in Spring Valley Township.

• Fred and Trudi Horihan have applied for a feedlot conditional use permit on land in Preble Township.
