Introducing a new concept; a new business; or in this case, a new technology to a community can be a daunting process. The Roaming Bison Wind project is, certainly, a new technology for Montgomery County and the folks in charge are making sure they have all the ‘t’s crossed and the ‘i’s dotted properly to make the introduction of wind turbines as informative and friendly as possible. That was a goal of an open house for the community Wednesday evening at Fusion 54 in Crawfordsville. 
J. J. Stone, one of the project coordinators, told The Paper, “There are many local, state and federal ‘hoops’ we have to jump through to satisfy all the requirements. Our transition into Montgomery County began with leasing, beginning in 2017. Addressing the myriad of requirements has been fairly smooth culminating with the pending county ordinance that is now in the works. Our first construction should be in the northwestern part of Montgomery County in the spring of 2020.”
Stone further stated, “The purpose of this seminar is to give local businesses and contractors a chance to introduce themselves and offer their services. Roaming Bison Wind will always use the local labor force, whenever possible. One of our goals has always been to bolster the local economy and this gathering is the beginning of building a database of Montgomery County businesses with which we can work.”
The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce was represented by Rick Hernandez who told us, “The Chamber is here to act as a liaison; gathering and coordinating information to whomever needs it to help keep things running smoothly.”
