TIPTON – The developer of a contentious wind farm in Tipton County has announced it will no longer pursue the Prairie Breeze Wind Farm.

Juwi Wind stated in a release the key reason the company choose Tipton County as the site for its proposed 150-megawatt development was the clear regulatory guidelines concerning wind projects. The company ran into resistance and unexpected costs when it attempted to obtain a permit for the project.

When a permit finally was issued, the Tipton County Board of Zoning Appeals placed conditions on the permit that juwi said "effectively rendered the project impossible to build."

The company and landowners in support of the project filed a lawsuit against the BZA, but juwi said in its statement “the continuing litigation costs and indefinite time period associated with pursuing the permits through litigation no longer make sense for the company.”
