Wind power causes controversy in Monroe County  

Not everybody in Monroe county is thrilled about a proposal to put up wind towers throughout the area.

County zoning administrator Allison Phillips shares some of the concerns raised by people who oppose wind power. They’re concerned about ice flying off the towers and hitting cars or people.

They also point to the noise and shadow flicker. Where the sunlight is cut by the blades on the towers causing a strobe effect in cars and homes.

Supporters says it’s a green renewable form of energy. That will bring additional jobs to the area and payoffs to the landowners who allow the wind towers to go on their property.

Phillips says each town has a say over the implementation of wind power. But, the battle between local governments and the company who owns the wind towers could be decided in court.
