County to proceed with further wind energy research

Buchanan County leaders have opted to continued proceeding with inquiries that could lead to the eventual location of a wind turbine farm. That decision follows a nearly 1 1/2-session last week with representatives of Black & Veatch, an engineering firm which the county is using as an independent consultant to assist with the research. A draft presentation of a wind energy ordinance was reviewed section-by-section last Wednesday night by Black & Veatch and county officials at the courthouse. The Buchanan . . . Complete story »

Sources: Vineyard Wind decision delayed until December 2020

Final approval for the Vineyard Wind Project will likely not happen for at least another 18 months, according to information received from multiple sources by The Public’s Radio. This means the country’s first large scale offshore wind farm won’t begin construction in time to take advantage of a lucrative federal tax credit that expires at the end of the year. The Department of the Interior will decide on whether to approve construction of the Vineyard Wind project in December 2020, . . . Complete story »

Wind, solar developers say transmission line key to achieving Tony Evers’ clean energy goal

Wind and solar energy developers and electrical workers are calling on Wisconsin regulators to approve a controversial power line that they say will be critical to meeting the governor’s clean energy goals. A joint venture of American Transmission Co., ITC Midwest and Dairyland Power Cooperative, the line would run from Dubuque, Iowa, to Middleton and cost between $474 million and $560 million. Those costs would be passed on to ratepayers in 12 states, with about 15 percent falling to Wisconsin. . . . Complete story »

Gov. Tony Evers: Wisconsin will be carbon neutral by 2050

Wisconsin will be carbon neutral by 2050 under a plan unveiled Friday by Gov. Tony Evers. Evers set the goal in an executive order that also created a state office dedicated to clean energy and sustainability. The order tasks the new Office of Sustainability and Clean Energy with achieving carbon neutrality within about 30 years, which means shifting the state away from electricity generated by fossil fuels in favor of things like solar and wind power. “For far too long, . . .

‘Tilt-fell’ wind tower removal gets new life

PRINCETON – Bureau County Board on Tuesday reconsidered last month’s vote that prevented Big Sky Wind from using the tilt/fell method for decommissioning wind turbines approved in 2006. The board had voted down an addendum to the project’s decommissioning and restoration plan last month, which would have allowed BSW DevCo LLC (the company that owns Big Sky Wind) to use tilt/fell method over the crane method during the current repowering project. Big Sky is in the process of updating its turbines . . . Complete story »

By the end of their presentation every person in attendance was opposed to the plan. I believe if people would take the time to weigh the pros and cons of this proposal, most would come to the same conclusion that I did: Wind turbines do not belong in Lake Erie or in any . . .

Clean energy jobs are big in Minnesota. But they often go to people from out of state

The fastest growing jobs in the country are solar panel installers and wind turbine service technicians, a fact that clean energy advocates use as evidence of a growing sector and the economic upside of transitioning away from fossil fuels. But in Minnesota, the rise of clean energy isn’t always resulting in new jobs for Minnesotans – at least when it comes to building wind projects. A report released Thursday by the Minnesota and North Dakota chapter of the Laborers’ International Union . . . Complete story »
