The Ohio Power Siting Board has extended a certificate needed to build the first phase of Everpower's proposed Buckeye Wind Project, located in Champaign County, Ohio.

The Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need was set to expire next March. If the request had been rejected, EverPower would have had to begin construction on the wind farm before March 22, 2015 or ostensibly start the lengthy certificate process from the beginning. The extension allows EverPower until May 28, 2018 to begin construction of the project.

The proposed project is located on a glacial ridge, encompasses up to 52 wind turbines across six townships.
