Wind energy hearing draws strong opposition

County planners tabled their review and pending recommendation on an application to build four commercial wind turbines south of Interstate 80 last week after hearing two hours of often emotional testimony from area neighbors who raised a number of concerns.

Representatives with Bluestem Energy Solutions explained details of the project, which was outlined in a 160-page application presented to the Hamilton County Joint Planning Commission.

A crowd of 60-plus citizens attended the public hearing at the county fairgrounds, with 13 people speaking out, all in opposition.
