Towns association supports wind siting bill

Posted on February 29, 2008. Filed under: General |

From a statement posted on the Web site of the Wisconsin Towns Association:

The Wisconsin Towns Association Board of Directors has authorized the staff to support a legislative bill to authorize the PSC to develop state standards for local ordinances for wind turbine siting. The board has expressed two points that need to be recognized in this bill and the rules. First, that the rule development by PSC be done in the most deliberative process possible taking into account impacts on immediate neighbors by using a technical advisory committee or advisory committee including citizen neighbors in development of the rules. Second, that the law and rule recognize impacts on adjacent neighbors to the wind turbines and that such impacts be compensated appropriately by the wind turbine developers.

The bill on siting was been introduced as Assembly Bill 899.
