Ind. wind farm owner suing Duke Energy Indiana

Indianapolis — The owner of a northern Indiana wind farm is suing Duke Energy Indiana Inc., accusing the utility of breach of contract involving its deal to buy electricity from the farm.

Earl Park-based Benton County Wind Farm LLC filed its suit in federal court in Indianapolis. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, claims Duke Energy Indiana hasn't honored its agreement.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports the suit alleges that Duke Energy's actions have resulted in the wind farm "frequently" being forced to curtail operations, causing sharp reductions in the farm's electrical output and revenue.

A Duke Energy spokeswoman says the company is reviewing the lawsuit.

Orion Energy Group LLC began running the wind farm in 2008 as Indiana's first commercial-scale operation, with 87 power-generating wind turbines.
