Wind Turbines

Wind farm east of Bradford along both sides of Highway 65.

A proposed wind farm, which one local elected official has called “the largest economic development project in the history of Hardin County” received the full backing of the Iowa Falls and Alden city councils this week, even as a county moratorium on commercial wind energy construction permits remains in place.

On Tuesday, the Iowa Falls City Council voted unanimously to approve a resolution in support of wind energy in general, and a proposed RWE Renewables wind farm in particular. On Wednesday, the Alden City Council approved a similar resolution.

Tile lines are fixed if disrupted, windmills don't cause cancer, and the blades will be recycled when there are enough to make it feasible- what is super's next reason for delay?
