Wind energy needs vocal support in Wisconsin!

The need for renewable energy in Wisconsin continues to grow.

In October 2008, We Energies proposed the Glacier Hills Wind Park in the towns of Randolph and Scott in Columbia County – approximate 45 miles northeast of Madison. The Glacier Hills Wind Park would consist of 90 turbines and generate 162 megawatts of electricity – enough capacity to power approximately 45,000 homes.

Comments are due regarding the Environmental Impact of the project by September 4, 2009. Now is the time for those of us who believe that wind power is good for the environment and good for Wisconsin to speak out and be heard. If opponents are successful in their quest, the future of wind energy in Wisconsin will be seriously called into question.

Please encourage the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC) to approve the construction of the Glacier Hills Wind Park and the need for more wind energy in Wisconsin by submitting comments to the PSC– click here.
