May 2018 Supervisors in Kossuth County vote to amend Wind Ordinance and passes from 500- to 600′ Wind Towers. http://algonaradio.com/index.php/2018/05/09/supervisors-vote-to-amend-wind-ordinance/
“One thing is emphatically clear to me: eminent domain should NEVER be used to condemn land for transmission lines to ship Iowa’s wind to Chicago or the East coast. An effort to use eminent domain by the Rock Island Clean Line (another Texas corporation) was defeated last year. Given the money and political power behind IWI, don’t be surprised if another proposal surfaces.
Regardless of where one stands on pork, oil, or wind, we should all agree that it’s wrong to ignore the voices of rural Iowans in order to export our resources to distant ports — whether those ports lie on Lake Michigan, the Atlantic Ocean, or the China Sea.”
