This is an industry that has seen its subsidy cash cow being led off to the abattoir to be put out of its misery and is desperately trying to resuscitate it with help from the . . . Complete story »

Test towers sought to see if wind farms feasible

A little more than 10 years ago, Madison County approved two conditional-use permits for wind towers to measure wind speeds to see if the areas were suitable for construction and operation of a wind farm. The towers, which also measured such things as wind direction and temperature, have since been taken down. No wind farms ever materialized. The towers were built by Third Planet Wind Power of Bad Axe, Mich., and the information collected is considered proprietary, so it isn’t . . . Complete story »

Such ambitions were precluded until now because of the depths of the Pacific near its . . . Complete story »
