Davison Co. commission stops wind project plan

The county’s commissioners, meeting as the Board of Adjustment Tuesday, unanimously voted in opposition to a conditional use permit application for a nine-turbine wind farm in Beulah Township from Davison County Wind, LLC and its parent company Con Edison Development. That decision was made by the five-person board at the Davison County North Offices in Mitchell.

The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission turned down an application Wednesday for a wind-energy complex proposed for Clark County. The regulatory panel voted 3-0 to reject Crocker Wind Farm. The project called for up to 200 turbines spread across more than 29,000 acres north of Clark.

Clark County residents debate big wind project

More than 40 people spoke for and against the project, which could include 200 wind turbines, each 500 feet tall with rotor diameters of 446 feet. Sixty landowners have signed onto the project, which would cover 30,000 acres in the rolling Crocker Hills. The hearing was only for the commissioners to gather input. No decision was made by the PUC and won’t be until late January 2018.

State utility regulators face 400-megawatt wind project

Consolidated Edison Development wants to provide electricity from wind turbines and be paid $60.70 per megawatt-hour. The amount reflects $11.63 of avoided carbon expense. The commission’s staff said in June that carbon costs haven’t been allowed by the commission in the past and make Con Ed’s request “unreasonable on its face.”

Big wind energy wants to ‘override’’ voters

It is time the people of South Dakota see what and who we are fighting. We must clearly see that these multinational/foreign corporations simply want to use us and our natural resources for their bottom line. However, knowledge is a powerful thing, and people are getting informed. But beware, big wind is relentless and has deep pockets.

Give wind energy time to evolve

Dakota Power Community Wind would have Lincoln County residents believe that the wind farm opposition is nothing more than a bunch of whiners concerned only with the view of their countryside. DPCW has also noted the Lincoln County Commissioners’ about-face in the degree of support since the initial proposal. A lot of information has since been provided that blows holes in the rosy, distorted projections for a wind farm.
