Wisconsin Citizens Safe Wind Siting Guidelines

These guidelines were developed based on a need to protect Wisconsin Citizens. The population densities in the areas that most interest wind developers are much higher in Wisconsin than in other parts of the country. Wisconsin citizens are forced to live within wind generation facilities and among industrial wind turbines to a much greater extent than those in other states. The guidelines place the health of the people of Wisconsin first.

Created by the following organizations:

BCCRWE, Brown County Citizens for Responsible Wind Energy - Brown County
CCCRE, Calumet County Citizens for Responsible Energy - Calumet County
Concerned Citizens of Smelser & Paris Township, Grant County residents - Grant County
Concerned Citizens of Trempealeau County - Trempealeau, Monroe, Rock, LaCrosse, and Dane counties
Forest Voice - St Croix County
Forward Wind Factory Victims Coalition - Fond du Lac County
Glenmore Constitutional Coalition - Brown County
Western Wisconsin Landowners Alliance - Monroe County
WINDCOWS, Wisconsin Independent Citizens Opposing Wind Turbine Sites- Manitowoc & Kewaunee Counties
