Seneca Anti-Wind Union unveils new downtown Tiffin headquarters




TIFFIN, OH — A group of local citizens who have organized against the proposed wind turbine farms in Seneca County have now opened an office in downtown Tiffin.

“We are very proud and excited to announce that the Seneca Anti-Wind Union now has a physical office space that is located in Downtown Tiffin!,” a press release from SAWU leader Chris Aichholz stated.

The Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce will be holding an official public ribbon cutting event on Tuesday, January 22 at 4 PM. The Seneca Anti-Wind Union “formally invites anyone and everyone” to attend.

The ribbon cutting event will take place in front of SAWU’s office doors which are located at 114 South Washington Street Suite C. “The office is located in the beautiful and historic Laird Arcade Building right across the corner from the new Joint Justice Center,” Aichholz said.

“Please spread the word as this event is completely open to the public. We are hoping for a massive turnout so we can get a great group picture with everyone included in it. We also would love to have each and every one of you sign our ribbon,” Aichholz continued.

The opening of SAWU’s office comes just a month after sPower announced the opening of their Tiffin headquarters downtown.

In December, joined by Seneca County residents, business leaders and elected officials, sPower cut the ribbon on an office for the Seneca Wind project in downtown Tiffin that will be open to the public during designated hours, five days a week. sPower encourages people to visit the office at 23 Court Street for information about Seneca Wind or to leave comments or questions about the project.

Seneca Wind will consist of up to 85 wind turbines on approximately 25,000 acres of privately leased land in Scipio, Reed, Venice, Eden and Bloom townships, providing enough clean energy to power almost 60,000 homes each year.
