The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has authorized Hardin Wind LLC to construct the Scioto Ridge wind farm. The facility will feature up to 176 wind turbines and have a nameplate capacity of up to 300 MW.

Hardin Wind, a wholly owned subsidiary of EverPower Wind Holdings Inc., will construct the project across 17,000 acres of leased private land in Lynn, McDonald, Roundhead, and Taylor Creek townships in Hardin County and Richland and Rushcreek townships in Logan County. The wind farm is associated with two additional OPSB cases that entail the construction of a 4.8-mile-long, 345 kV transmission line and a 345 kV substation in McDonald Township.

The OPSB says its order subjects the combined projects to 28 conditions that Hardin Wind must implement and follow to ensure the sound construction and safe operation of the wind farm, substation and transmission facilities, and to mitigate impacts to area residents and ecological resources.
