TIPTON, Ind. - A developer has withdrawn plans for a wind farm in central Indiana.
Colorado-based juwi Wind announced Thursday it is giving up plans to erect 94 wind turbines in a rural area northwest of Tipton. Tipton is 35 miles north of Indianapolis.
The company sued the Tipton County zoning board nearly a year ago, claiming the board overreached its authority by increasing the distance wind turbines had to be from property lines and requiring a plan to protect property values for landowners in the area who weren't taking part in the development.
The Kokomo Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1qW90D4 ) that juwi said the stipulations effectively made the $300 million project impossible.
The future of the lawsuit is unclear.
