Perry planners continue update of turbine rules

PERRY – The town Planning Board is continuing to work on its updated wind turbine regulations, Chairman Douglas Good said Wednesday.

The Planning Board is considering changes which would essentially ban industrial-scale wind turbines in its boundaries.

Good said planners are considering regulations similar to those enacted in towns such as Warsaw.

The latter basically banned commercial wind farms by limiting height to 75 feet on parcels from one to five acres, and 125 feet on parcels five acres or more.

But Perry’s planners want to ensure wind turbines could still be allowed for smaller-scale, private use such as farms and businesses. A public hearing on the proposed changes was conducted Tuesday.

Wind energy has been highly controversial in the town since Horizon Wind Energy proposed the Dairy Hills Wind Farm in 2005.

Horizon ultimately froze the project in October 2009 due to its uncertainty. The Town Board this past May to declare the wind farm application null and void.

A 12-month moratorium on wind energy development was enacted a month later.
