Legislative panel approves wind turbine regulations on 4th try

A long-running dispute over how to regulate power-generating wind turbines in Connecticut ended Tuesday when a legislative committee finally approved new rules that will end a nearly three-year stalemate on the issue.

The legislature’s Regulations Review Committee approved the regulations that will allow the state Siting Council to regulate the height of wind turbines and other details. But critics of the rules have said they aren’t pleased the state didn’t require more of a “set back” of the turbines from nearby homes.

Gov. Dannel Malloy has been pushing for approval of new regulations and he said Wednesday that he was “in a celebratory mood” and not inclined to talk about all the political reasons involved in opposition to the regulations in the past.

Wind energy businesses were fearful of more delays, warning failure to approve the regulations this time around could kill chances for moving ahead with wind turbines in this state.
