WIND ENERGY (H 4955) – Meanwhile, Republicans in the Senate are holding up the measure that would change the process of placing wind energy facilities in cities and towns.

Republicans say the bill goes too far and would dilute the power of cities and towns to decide whether to grant a permit to a wind energy developer. They noted that voters should have the final say on whether to allow a wind energy project in their community.

Supporters of the measure say it would streamline the permitting process and still includes safeguards that would ensure cities and towns have the final say whether to allow a wind energy project. They note that current law is very complicated and has held up many wind energy projects. Some argue that more wind energy projects would create jobs and help Massachusetts wean itself off imported fossil fuels.
