Company seeks more windmills in Glenmore 

Passions flared as Glenmore residents listened to a second wind-turbine company’s request to build more windmills in their town.

In a nearly four-hour meeting Tuesday night, Suamico developer Tom Mattson of Prelude LLC presented his plans for seven wind turbines on School and Morrison roads to the town planning commission, which ultimately tabled it pending legal counsel.

Mattson’s request came on the heels of a request last month from Emerging Energies/Shirley Wind LLC of Hubertus for a 30-year conditional-use permit to construct eight turbines on land owned by four families. The Town Board is slated to vote on that measure on March 26.

Many residents spoke against Mattson’s project, saying their property values would drop and their quality of life would plummet from noise, strobing and disturbance to the landscape.

“My 2-acre property is going to be surrounded by wind turbines,” Rockland resident Paul Falck said. He lives across the street from an existing windmill site near the Glenmore-Rockland border.

School Road resident Jean Tenor said the windmill near her house sounds “like a jet engine flying over the house,” only it doesn’t fly over – it just keeps going on and on.

Shirley Wind executives sat in the audience at Tuesday’s meeting. They tossed a wrench into the situation by requesting that Mattson pay for studies to determine whether the placement of his proposed wind turbines would deprive their proposed turbines of potential energy revenue.
