Allen and Anderson counties commissioners have enacted documents setting out guidelines that must be observed for energy companies to erect wind-farm turbines.

Anderson’s are stricter. If all or part of a wind farm is to be on its landscape, it probably would occur in the south part of county, not far from where EDP Renewables has proposed to place 500-foot-tall turbines in Allen. That assumption comes from studying a map of the county to the north.

Clearance between a tower and residential and commercial property is a key component in each county.
