Most likely we would’ve backed into a “compromise” (we all know how well the wind industry compromises) and we would’ve been stuck with a bill that helps very few, if anyone. We were pleased and emboldened by the express support from many of our legislators.’ Update, March 5: SF 361 is the only wind energy . . .

Proposed for a site in West Dorset, in open unspoilt countryside just north of Tolpuddle, it would comprise five 115 metre (377 feet) high industrial-scale turbines.
