New turbine site rules unlikely to affect Invenergy project in Brown County

Posted on August 31, 2010. Filed under: Wind |


From an article by Tony Walter in the Green Bay Press Gazette:

Wind turbine siting rules approved today by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission likely will have little impact on a Chicago-based company’s attempts to build a 100-turbine wind farm in southern Brown County.

The PSC established guidelines for local governments to set restrictions on projects less than 100 megawatts in generating capacity.

However, the Ledge Wind project proposed by Invenergy LLC in the towns of Morrison, Holland, Glenmore and Wrightstown exceeds 100 megawatts. The company submitted its application to the PSC last year but was told to make some changes.

Invenergy is expected to resubmit its application soon.
