Local group ups media battle against DTE Energy

A citizens group in northwest Branch County opposed to the siting of wind turbines is fighting back against DTE Energy radio commercials that have been running in recent months.

Commercials supporting the views of Concerned Citizens of Branch County have aired in recent days.

The group’s Pam Reid says some people have a misconception about what they stand for. Reid says they are not anti-renewable energy, but are against improper siting and incompatible land use)

Anna Keim says the group has a credibility issue with DTE Energy’s message. She claims DTE Energy representatives are claiming turbines will be built in the next year or two and it’s a done deal when it actually isn’t.

The group has been trying to get Branch County officlas to update the county’s Master Plan, but have been unsuccessful in getting the county to issue a moratorium on the construction of wind turbines.

County Administrator Bud Norman said during last month’s Planning Commission meeting that one issue was only 12 townships in Branch County currently have zoning and a ballot question in Union Township to have a zoning board was defeated by 25 votes last November. He said a moratorium has to have teeth in it, and right now, that does not exist for the county.
