County makes decisions on wind

BAD AXE – Several decisions involving wind turbines were made at Tuesday’s Huron County Commissioners meeting.

The board voted 6-1 in favor of a resolution to share legal costs related to wind turbine tax value determinations.

The disagreement is with Michigan’s State Tax Commission, which voted last fall to lower the taxable value of wind turbines.

The commission voted unanimously to oppose Michigan Ballot Proposal 3, more commonly known as “25 by 25.” The proposal would amend the state Constitution to require utlities to generate at least 25 percent of all electricity from renewable resources by 2025.

The commission also voted to join the Clean Affordable Renewable Energy (CARE) for Michigan Coalition, which opposes the proposal.
