Have your driven up US-127 to the north through Gratiot County?
If you have you can’t miss the landscape of countless windmills.
As we move at breakneck speed to implement an energy alternative around the country that is inefficient and cost prohibitive. Other countries are abandoning the technology because of the cost to the consumers, so why do we continue to still move in that direction.
Clinton County is about to have it’s own windmill farm if it is approved. The county commissioners have already opened the door for the windmills and the paperwork has been put in place to move ahead with the project.
There will be a open house on the proposed wind farm on Thursday, July 12, 2012 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on a 40-turbine Fowler Farms wind project at:
4041 South U.S. Highway 27
St. Johns, MI 48879
Forest Hills Energy has applied for a permit for 40 turbines in Clinton County. The open house will provide ample information on the project and an opportunity to answer questions from the community.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue make your voice heard.
I assume you know where I stand on the issue from the comments I have made. I WILL NOT be able to attend because I will be at another meeting in Clare at that same time.
