Wind Farm Operator Ends Dispute By Paying Coos

Feb 14, 2013

Brookfield Renewable Energy has ended a dispute with Coos County over payments for its wind turbines by paying up.

Last month Brookfield, which operates 33 wind turbines, said it only owed about $245,000.

That is about half of what the county expected under a Payment-in-Lieu-of-Taxes agreement. The deal was for ten years.

The county argued the contract was clear and required payments for wind turbine generators that “are actually installed and either generating energy or capable of generating energy and permitted to generate energy as required by applicable law.”
