MEMORANDUM

Posted: April 30, 2021 01:16 PM
From: Representative Curtis G. Sonney
To: All House members
Subject: Allowing Wind Energy on Farmland Preservation
 
My legislation amends the Agricultural Area Security Law to provide a preserved farmland owner with 50+ acres the access to grant a right-of-way to install a wind power generation system. 
 
Under the current easement program, these landowners who are enrolled in land preservation may grant the use of right-of-ways for the installation of, transportation of, or use of water, sewage, electric, telephone, coal or non-coal minerals by underground mining methods, gas, oil and/or oil products lines. 
 
My legislation will add wind power generation to that list, within certain parameters to protect the integrity of the preserved farmland. 
 
Prior HB 441.  Former cosponsors include; CIRESI, FREEMAN, LAWRENCE, MARKOSEK, MILLARD, MURT, PASHINSKI, RYAN, SAYLOR, SCHWEYER, ZIMMERMAN, RABB, MASSER and LONGIETTI
