PSC sued over wind farm rules; Farmers want stricter regulations

MADISON – A western Wisconsin couple is suing the state Public Service Commission over its proposed new rules for wind farms.

The suit alleges the PSC did not make the proper environmental impact study before coming up with the rules, which were proposed in August.

The attorney for David and Deloras Vind, who own a farm near Arcadia in Trempealeau County, said he hopes a judge would force the PSC to reconsider the rules and come up with a new proposal that includes longer setbacks, tougher noise restrictions and more protections for property owners.

Friday afternoon, a PSC spokesman told FOX 11, “the PSC has approved the rule consistent with its statutory obligations and it will vigorously defend against this lawsuit.”

The rules are set to considered by a state Senate committee Oct. 13.
