Wind farm denied in Davison County

A 9- to 11-turbine wind farm in Davison County that would be located about 5 to 10 miles west of Mitchell was denied Tuesday morning.

The Davison County Commission denied the wind farm in a 4-1 vote before an attendance of about 50 people both in support and opposition of the $40 million project to construct 446-foot turbines. Commission Chairwoman Brenda Bode was the only vote in support of the project.

The motion was made by Commissioner John Claggett and seconded by Commissioner Denny Kiner. Kiner said he was concerned with property values of neighbors potentially being decreased if the project is built by Minnesota-based Juhl Energy.

“Once this precedent is set, we could have these all over the county,” Kiner said.

The proposed wind farm would occupy a 3-mile by 1-mile stretch of Brad and Peggy Greenway’s land in Beulah Township, which has garnered heavy dissatisfaction from neighbors concerned with the project’s impact on quality of life and property value.

Before making the motion, Claggett suggested the project should go to a public vote.
