New nonprofit formed to fight proposed turbine project

At Wednesday night’s Stanton Township board meeting, the Guardians of the Keweenaw Ridge introduced themselves, and asked to play a role in shaping ordinances that would regulate a proposed wind farm development from Circle Power.

Guardians member James Mihelcic says he is not opposed to alternative energy efforts at the residential level, such as solar panels or improved insulation, but commercial grade developments are a different matter. Mihelcic said Wednesday’s meeting was important to inform the board of the Guardians’ capabilities beyond just advocacy.

Our goal today was to introduce ourselves to the Township Board and let them know that we have services available; technical, scientific, business, and we also have an attorney hired now. We would like to work with the board to develop commonsense regulations for industrial wind turbine factories.

Many Guardians members say they only became aware of the proposed wind farm in recent months and Wednesday’s meeting was the first time some of them had been in the same room as representatives from Circle Power.

Members of the group have varied concerns, but they can be broadly categorized as worries over noise and the resulting health effects for those living near where wind turbines are slated to be installed in Stanton and Adams Townships, the potential for property values to decline, and how wildlife will be impacted.
