A bill that sets out statewide wind and solar standards is making its way through the Statehouse, and local governments, including Huntington County, are standing in opposition.

At a recent Huntington County Board of Commissioners meeting, councilmembers unanimously approved a resolution opposing House Bill 1381, which was sponsored by Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso. If passed, the House Bill 1381 would establish default standards for such projects including setback requirements, height restrictions, shadow flicker limitations, signal interference and sound level limitations.
