Adams Township passes wind farm moratorium  

Credit:  www.keweenawreport.com ~~

The Adams Township Board joined Stanton Township in passing a moratorium on all commercial renewable energy projects. The measure will make it impossible to get the ok for the proposed Scotia Wind Farm for at least six months. Several government agencies have already weighed in on the project, denying approval. That decision is being appealed by Circle Power. Stanton Township’s moratorium is nine months in length, compared to six, which may push any construction into 2023, assuming Circle Power can navigate the roadblocks now in front of it.

Guardians of the Keweenaw Ridge Spokesman James Mihelcic provided the following statement. “We are happy to hear that Adams Township, along with Stanton Township, have listened to residents and see the need to further study how the proposed wind turbine project will impact the health and safety, and cultural, historical, economic, and environmental well-being of township residents and other residents and visitors to the Copper Country. We still have a lot of work to do because Circle Power has not stated they plan to abandon the proposed project and they have also told us that they have other sites in mind. Furthermore, their application to EGLE for the environmental permit mentioned they had considered sites in Gratiot Lake and Toivola.”
