Wind Farm Closer to a Reality

A state report recommends a Highland County wind farm be approved.

A State Corporation Commission hearing examiner has recommended approval of the proposal to put 19 wind turbines in Highland County.

He also recommends that officials monitor the effects of the turbines on birds and bats, including taking precautions to reduce deaths of the animals.

The proposal now goes before the three-member State Corporation Commission for a decision.
