A western Wisconsin community pulls the plug on a wind project.
An energy company was looking to build dozens of wind turbines in the Town of Forest, north of Glenwood City. Last week, the town board voted to void the agreement and building permits for the project. The building permits were approved the day before a recall vote for several board members.
Some residents in the community are against the plan because of potential health hazards.
