Wisconsin Towns Association calls for moratorium on construction of new wind turbines

A group of government leaders wants to halt the spread of huge wind farms around the state.

The Wisconsin Towns Association voted Monday to adopt a resolution calling on the state of Wisconsin and the Public Service Commission to enact a moratorium on the construction of industrial wind turbines “until further studies are done, solutions are found and the state’s wind siting rule is modified.”

The towns association cited a Dec. 28 report to the PSC by four consulting firms that found noise from the Shirley Wind Farm in Denmark, may be affecting some neighboring farms. The report recommended more testing and research.

The report is part of testimony in connection with an application to build the 41-turbine Highland wind farm in St. Croix County, in northwest Wisconsin. The PSC is expected to take up the proposal by the end of February, PSC spokesman Matt Pagel said.

He said the resolution by the towns association will become part of the public record on the case.
