PSC Continuing Wind Farm Regulation Debate

10/11/11 – The Wisconsin Public Service Commission continues to debate wind farm regulation. The Department of Health Services is expected to provide the PSC with a report on the potential health impacts wind farms can have on nearby residents. Noise pollution is also a consideration. Until then no farms are expected to be built, which some say is keeping hundreds of Wisconsin workers out of a job. Five major wind farms have been suspended or canceled since a legislative committee stalled their development in March. Nearly all the state’s 219 wind turbines reside in Fond du Lac, Dodge and Columbia Counties.
