DeKalb County changes setback distance between windmills and property lines

DeKalb County Commissioners took a final vote to change the county’s setback distance between windmills and property lines Monday morning.

The Commissioners changed the distance from 400 feet to 1,300 feet. The required distance between a windmill and a house or other structure remains at 1,500 feet.

Commissioner Don Grogg said the property line change brings DeKalb County closer to the industry standard. He also said it is doubtful any windfarms will decide to build in the county now.
