Wind turbines to power Waxdale, the SC Johnson plant in Mount Pleasant, may soon be part of the local skyline.

Residents are invited to a public hearing at 5:30 pm on Tues., Oct. 11, at Schulte School in Sturtevant to listen to a presentation from company officials.

According to a press release from the company, SC Johnson plans to build two or three turbines to produce renewable energy for its Waxdale plant, which is the size of 36 football fields. Eventually, all of Waxdale’s power will be produced on-site with 60 percent of it from renewable energy.

“Today nearly 40 percent of the company’s worldwide electricity comes from renewable energy, and we’re committed to making even greater progress,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO, SC Johnson in the release. “Wind turbines at Waxdale, right here in the backyard of our corporate headquarters, is one of the many ways we are working to further reduce our environmental footprint.”

Representatives from SC Johnson are also scheduled to make a presentation before the Sturtevant Continual Committee at 6 pm the same day at Sturtevant Village Hall.

Schulte School is located at 8515 Westminster Drive. Sturtevant Village Hall is at 2801 89th Street.
