PSC denies request to block Green County wind farm
Wisconsin regulators voted Thursday to deny a request from some Green County residents to stop construction of a controversial wind farm near Monroe.

The 65-megawatt Sugar River Wind project proposed by EDF Renewables would consist of 24 turbines in the town of Jefferson near the Illinois border.

A group of 56 people who live or own property within the 5,870-acre project area but don’t have leases with the developer appealed the county’s approval, arguing the county continued to gather information even after declaring the application complete and holding a public hearing...

Ken Notes: Would it not make some sense to do a comprehensive plan for the entire state to identify where solar and wind project would best be located with the least impact to farming and residents and the most benefit to the utilities and business. We need leadership at the state level to further our energy objective in a positive nonpolitical environment.
