Wind, Solar Focus Of Legislative Committee

Oct 6, 2017

Indiana lawmakers prompted debate at the Statehouse Thursday over potential conflicts of interest for local officials who approve large wind energy projects.

County commissions and planning boards approve wind farm developments in Indiana. Rep. Dave Ober (R-Albion) says in some cases, those commissioners have also signed lease agreements with developers and would benefit from a project’s approval.

“I see a very large issue with that and I hope we can work on that issue next year,” Ober said to start the hearing.

Tri-Creek School Corporation in south Lake County is the recipient of a March "Innovators Award" from the Society of Innovators in Northwest Indiana. 

Superintendent Debra Howe came on "Regionally Speaking" on Tuesday to talk about the programs that led to the award, beginning with a student-pilot project on solar energy that led to a district-wide program that will save tens of thousands of dollars in energy costs each year -- more than enough to cover the cost of the project.  Here's the conversation.
