The Scioto Ridge Wind Farm in Hardin and Logan counties will be capable of generating 300 megawatts of electricity and will include up to 60 miles of access roads, 83 miles of underground electric collection lines and four meteorological towers.

The farm could power up to 83,000 homes.

The Ohio Power Siting Board on Monday authorized Hardin Wind, LLC, a subsidiary of EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc., to construct the project on 17,000 acres of private land.

   The siting board said the wind farm is associated with two additional projects involving the construction of a 4.8 mile long, 345 kilovolt transmission line and a 345 kilovolt substation in Hardin County.
