Arcadia couple suing over wind energy rules

An Eau Claire attorney is suing the Wisconsin Public Service Commission on behalf of a rural Arcadia family for failing to conduct an environmental review of proposed wind energy siting rules.

Attorney Glen Stoddard said the rules favor the wind energy industry at the expense of property owners living near wind turbines. He is representing David and Delores Vind, who own a farm near Arcadia. It’s an area, they say, that has been considered for wind energy development.

“My wife and I decided to file the lawsuit after the PSC adopted the rules in their current form without doing an environmental assessment on the rules or evaluating the adverse environmental impacts of wind energy projects,” David Vind said in a news release.

Stoddard said the commission violated the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act and the state’s smart growth law by not conducting an environmental analysis.
