Letter to the Editor from DeWitt County Board Chair on Wind Turbine Issue


Posted August 20, 2021

Dear Editor:

In response to the letter from Barb McMath I had a long chain of emails.  in fact I asked 3 times for a response to my question about curtailment. The first was answered that PJM needed 20 minutes notice to curtail. Upon reading about curtailing for our condition, they finally  answered that curtailment without out permission can occur for safety and mechanical reasons. I did not get this response until after the meeting on the 22nd of July. I,in fact, stated at that meeting that I had hoped for my answer for the meeting. 


I resent the accusation of holding off in order to delay. I have been on record that the Condition 1 had been met as 30 permits have been issued. This is a contentious issue but our SUP set the guidelines for the project and the letter of our ordinance must be followed by Enel and the County


Thank you,
Terry Ferguson

Dewitt County Board Chair
