National Wind LLC has announced the formation of Northwest Ohio Wind Energy LLC, a community wind development company in Paulding and Van Wert counties, Ohio.

Northwest Ohio Wind Energy is one of 12 families of community-based wind projects currently being developed by National Wind.

A group of area landowners and investors, previously organized as Ohio Wind Energy LLC, joined National Wind and the local community to form Northwest Ohio Wind Energy. Northwest Ohio Wind Energy, managed by National Wind, plans to develop 300 MW of wind power projects in Paulding and Van Wert counties in northwestern Ohio and is off to a strong start signing leases with local landowners.

"As wind development increases in the state, many farmers and landowners are joining groups to educate themselves on what wind projects could mean for their livelihoods," says Terry McClure, chairman of the Northwest Ohio Wind Energy local advisory board. "Our group out in Paulding and Van Wert counties decided that a community-based project would likely add more to our local economy than a traditional wind development."
