Leelanau County Wind Energy Resource Zone Report

Here's the link to the report from the Wind Energy Resource Zone Board mentioned in the Leelanau Enterprise. http://www.leelanau.cc/clevelandtwp.asp . It's 75 pages and details plans for making Leelanau a Wind Energy Resource Zone and will make it more likely that wind farm development will move forward in Leelanau.

The board wildly overestimates wind energy potential in the state and calls for a minimum of 435 and max. of 778 giant wind turbines larger than the Statue of Liberty in our Zone (Leelanau, Benzie, and Manistee Co), which is one of 4 zones in the state having the highest wind energy harvest potential.

Township residents can comment on the report and I encourage you to do so to stop wind farm development in the county.
