The city of Orono has gone to court to stop a resident from putting up a back-yard wind generator. The conflict between Jay Nygard and the city involves a home-sized turbine on Nygard's lakeshore property. The suit asserts that Orono zoning prohibits the turbine as an allowed use and that the location is too close to property lines. Nygard contends the city misinterpreted its rules.
