Wind and Solar Energy Systems

Sedgwick County Commissioners held a public forum on Thursday, March 28 for residents to provide input on land use related wind and solar energy systems in the county. 

Residents also had the option to leave comments related to wind and solar energy systems in an online forum through Friday, April 26.

During a public meeting on February 7, Commissioners voted to temporarily prohibit applications for wind and solar energy operations through a moratorium. This action will allow staff to conduct additional research and study for the development, consideration, and potential establishment of specific standards or regulations. The moratorium will temporarily prohibit the acceptance and processing of an application for a commercial wind or solar energy system until August 12, 2019. There are no current applications for such systems in Sedgwick County.
