You Can Support a Huge (102.5-MW) Wind Farm in Wisconsin

 
A reader shared this with us on the CleanTechnica Facebook timeline. It’s a petition to support a huge wind farm in Wisconsin. It wasn’t created out of any special attack on the wind farm, it seems, but just proactively to help make sure this important wind farm moves forward through the permitting process. Personally, I love that — proactive citizen involvement is something we need a lot more of in the U.S. (and probably all around the world).

The petition is embedded below, followed by the “About this Petition” text from the Change.org page:

Wind energy is important because it is a clean energy source and does not produce harmful emissions. Renewable energy sources need to increase in numbers in Wisconsin to help Wisconsin become less dependent on foreign energy supplies.

The Highland Wind Project proposes 41 wind turbines in the Town of Forest of the St. Croix County. The $250 million dollar project will generate 102.5 megawatts, or will be able to provide enough electricity for 30,000 homes.

An application from Highland Wind Farm to allow construction has been submitted to the Public Service Commission (PSC) and has been officially stated as ‘complete’ as of March 29, 2012.

This is a huge step forward but the next step is The PSC has 180 days (September 25th, 2012) to review another application known as the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity(CPCN) which is required for the project to be approved.

Let the Town of Forest, St. Croix County, and the State of Wisconsin know that you are aware of this project and that you support this project.

Public Comments can be submitted to the PSC here:
