Connecticut Siting Council is a powerful force; Towns can fight wind turbines, but board’s call usually wins out  

Credit:  BY GEORGE KRIMSKY, REPUBLICAN-AMERICAN, www.rep-am.com 26 March 2011 ~~

Everybody wants their cellphone to work everywhere.

Everbody wants power at the lowest possible cost.

Almost nobody wants the Connecticut Siting Council in their back yard.

The 31-member council, which has essentially incontestable authority, has the last word on the placement of all power, hazardous waste and telecommunications facilities in the state. Its decisions carry “preemptive jurisdiction” over local municipalities and their citizens, a clout not welcome in a state that prides itself on home rule.
