Bill would stop new wind farms  

Credit:  www.spokesman.com 13 March 2011 ~~

BOISE – An eastern Idaho lawmaker has introduced a bill calling for a two-year statewide moratorium on industrial wind-energy projects.

Republican Rep. Erik Simpson, of Idaho Falls, said the moratorium is needed to give officials time to study the ramifications of the projects on the state’s economy, the environment, and on energy bills received by consumers.

Simpson said the moratorium is a common-sense approach to what he describes as an out-of-control problem in the state.

Randy Gardner of Ridgeline Energy said a moratorium could cause wind energy companies to look for opportunities in other states.

If the bill became law it wouldn’t halt wind energy projects already under construction or that have permits.
