Ashe County adopts new wind turbine rules  

Ashe County commissioners voted unanimously today to adopt a new county wind-energy ordinance.

The new version takes the place of one adopted in February. It limits the total height of wind turbines to 199 feet. That means that the turbines would not require aircraft warning lights.

The new stipulation pleases residents, including those who objected because the turbines would be illuminated at night.

The revised ordinance takes effect immediately.
