Latest Invenergy Wind Farm Hearing
Nearly 100 people attended a McLean County Zoning Board of Appeals hearing Tuesday to share their thoughts, pro and con, on a special-use permit being sought by Invenergy out of Chicago for a 100-turbine, 250-megawatt Invenergy wind farm in the northern part of the county. The project could start operating before 2021 if the permit is granted. The board meets again Wednesday at 6pm. Recently, another wind farm company, Houston-based EDP Renewables North America, filed a similar application for its own 58-turbine wind farm in Chenoa, Lawndale and Yates townships.
