PSC rejects wind farm developer’s appeal

The state Public Service Commission on Friday refused to rethink its decision to deny a construction permit for the Highland Wind farm in St. Croix County.

By a 2-to-1 vote, the commission decided not to grant an emergency request filed last week by Emerging Energies, the project developer.

The developer said it had new information that showed it could meet the commission’s concerns about turbine noise levels near homes.

Commission Chairman Phil Montgomery and commissioner Ellen Nowak voted to deny the request, while commissioner Eric Callisto said he would support allowing the new evidence submitted by the developer to be taken into account.

Nowak said the commission would be setting a bad precedent by straying from its typical process of allowing applicants a time to appeal – once the commission’s final written decision has been issued.

In this case, the request came in between the commissioners’ Feb. 14 discussion of the proposal and the issuance of a final written decision, Nowak said.
