KENTON, Ohio (AP) - EverPower officials continue to negotiate with Logan County commissioners over the construction of a windmill farm that would stretch from Hardin to Logan counties.

The Lima News reports (https://bit.ly/1QVxAnY ) the two sides are trying to reach an agreement on taxes while land for the proposed windmill farm’s 105 turbines is surveyed.

Jason Dagger, manager of the $350 million Scioto Ridge Wind Farm project, says the project is expected to generate $1.8 million in annual tax revenues, with almost half going to school systems in those counties.

Hardin County, which will have 87 of the windmills, already has in place a taxation rate of $9,000 per megawatt of electricity.

Electricity generated from the windmills will be sold on the open market and is expected to power more than 50,000 homes annually.
