Has any landowners in Auglaize been contacted yet by the wind companies? How much money is being offered per turbine?
Van Wert landowners are feeling a little less shrewd these days hearing their wind rights are worth $7,500 compared to Dekalb Illinois who are yielding $20,000 per turbine.
Of course the paltry 10 dollars per acre in Van Wert gives the wind companies the right to cut through a landowners tile lines. One contractor hired by the wind companies in Vdub to reconnect the tile lines has said he was told to hook up only every third tile line.
The cost to have underground electric wire laid is $1,000 per foot so there is no compromising on where the wind company lays their lines once your ground is signed up... Just food for thought.
Anyone been contacted yet?

It could be worse.They could take your land from you to put up turbines. The befefit for many outweighs the benefit of 1!

How would 25 cents per kilowatt benefit the many over their current 9 or 10 cents per kilowatt? Eminent domain is a moronic idle threat....
