Dairy Air Wind takes down its Holland MET tower

HOLLAND – Dairy Air Wind has taken down a controversial wind measurement (MET) tower in Holland.

The tower stood in a cornfield on land owned by Linda Champney and leased to Brian Champney of Dairy Air Farm. Renewable energy developer David Blittersdorf is backing the project.

The Public Utilities Commission opened an investigation on July 24 into whether the developer put up the tower in the wrong place – and whether the tower should have been put up at all while a series of motions for reconsideration were on the table.

MET towers are put up to measure wind before going ahead with the installation of a commercial wind development. In December, Dairy Air Wind applied for a Certificate of Public Good (CPG) for a single 2.2-megawatt power-generating turbine.

According to site documents, the CPG application for the power-generating turbine is a separate docket, independent of the fate of the MET tower’s CPG.

Dairy Air Wind was given until August 3 to answer the commission’s questions about the location of the MET tower and exactly when it was put up. But instead, on that day, it took the tower down.
