Turbine wind farms coming to private lands  

Credit:  By KMVT News, www.kmvt.com 20 September 2011 ~~

New wind turbines may pop up south of Twin Falls.
There are 4 applications in to Twin Falls County planning and zoning.
Right now the P and Z board of commissioners are reviewing the application.
The 4 projects make up a wind farm complex just west and south of rogerson.
It could have around 50 wind turbines built.
The planning and zoning director says they’ve had to deal with some new issues.
Bill Crafton, Director of Twin Falls County P&Z says “Its been an educational process, and as we run into those, we’ve tried to deal with them early on. as we were discussing in there we kind of dealt with the set back from the roads, the canals, this is the first time we’ve had a canal in a project area, so we’re trying to deal with that as what would be a reasonable distance from that.”
Much of what the board is concerned about is safety. Developers will present to the board this Thursday at a public hearing. All the turbines would be located on private land. This would be the first wind farm complex for southern Twin Falls County. However there is a proposal for a wind farm on china mountain. Its located farther south. The county currently has about 100 operational wind turbines in the western part of the county.
