In May 2004 the Pike County Zoning Board approved an ordinance to expedite the process of siting wind turbines. The ordinance includes specifications regarding planning, construction, "setbacks," and height and noise requirements for wind projects. This ordinance was passed to clarify to wind energy developers Pike County's construction standards. The ordinance specifies a "setback" of three times the turbine height (the height of the tower plus the length of one blade), referred to as "3 T," from homes. However, turbines sited on a landowner's property may be as close as 1.1 T if the landowner consents. There is also a minimum setback of 1.1 T from the nearest property line. Wiring for turbines must be buried.
