SD economy could be helped with a 50-year ban on wind development  

Credit:  Capital Journal | Feb 19, 2018 | www.capjournal.com ~~

Two issues are coming to light in this year’s legislative session: “economic development” and a new one “wind energy” and the problems it is causing. This week I saw a good friend of mine make a choice. He bought a house in Sioux Falls and is selling (hopefully) his beautiful retirement home in rural South Dakota. He had hoped to live in the country another 10 years, but 200 projected wind turbines changed his mind. As the wind developers and our Governor complete their plans of covering rural South Dakota with thousands of 600 ft. tall wind turbines (like the ones we just hate when driving through Iowa or Minnesota), there is going to be an exodus of thousands of people over the next 10 years from these rural areas. The best thing for economic development any county in South Dakota could do would be to BAN wind development for the next 50 years. The folks that want to retire with peace and quiet and live in rural South Dakota will move to your “Paradise.” Because the present “Paradise of rural living” will have been destroyed.
