Judge dismisses wind farm case

From an article by Kristopher Wenn in the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter:

MANITOWOC — A judge has dismissed a lawsuit from a wind farm developer that argued Man-itowoc County’s wind turbine or-dinance violates state law and makes the company’s proposed pro-ject “cost-prohibitive.”

Manitowoc County Circuit Judge Darryl Deets on Wednesday dismissed the case, which was filed by Emerging Energies LLP of Hubertus, in May 2007.

Emerging Energies is proposing a seven-turbine wind farm in the town of Mishicot. The plan has been met with criticism. In April 2007, the project was derailed when opponents won a favorable ruling in a civil suit seeking to void a conditional-use permit the county had granted under its original ordinance.

In an interview, Deets said the company would have to apply for a conditional-use permit under the most recently amended ordinance before the court could determine if the ordinance’s restrictions violate state law. . . .
