Developers are seeking alternate locations for a wind farm in western Ohio after residents of Mercer County complained that turbines would block their view of the region's celebrated Roman Catholic church spires. The wind farm was to be built by NextEra Energy Resources, a Florida-based development company.

According to this article in the Springfield News-Sun, the rural area north of Dayton is home to dozens of Roman Catholic churches built in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and many are on the National Register of Historic Places.
