Recommended Update of Sample Zoning for Wind Energy Systems 

Author:  | Health, Michigan, Noise, Ordinances, Regulations, Safety

On April 16, 2008, a document titled Sample Zoning for Wind Energy Systems was published by the state of Michigan. That document is attached as an appendix. Recent contacts with Michigan state government offices revealed that the state has no current plans to update the guideline. Consequently, we prepared this report in an attempt to inform the public and assist municipalities and counties that are responsible for developing zoning for wind energy systems. We strongly recommend that the state of Michigan consider our recommendations in adopting an official revision of its earlier guideline on the siting of onshore, utility-scale wind turbines. …

The proposed revisions were developed through regular meetings, consultation with experts in acoustics and wind turbine design, reviews of the existing scientific literature and the review of currently adopted siting guidelines of states and foreign countries.
