Just got an email from Ed Blume of RENEW Wisconsin. Here’s what he has to say:
Wind energy needs your vocal support in Wisconsin!
In October 2008, We Energies proposed the Glacier Hills Wind Park in the towns of Randolph and Scott in Columbia County – approximate 45 miles northeast of Madison. The Glacier Hills Wind Park would consist of 90 turbines and generate 162 megawatts of electricity – enough capacity to power approximately 45,000 homes.
Comments are due regarding the Environmental Impact of the project by September 4, 2009. Now is the time for those of us who believe that wind power is good for the environment and good for Wisconsin to speak out and be heard. If opponents are successful in their quest, the future of wind energy in Wisconsin will be seriously called into question.

I support the proposed wind farm in Columbia County. The future of affordable fossil fuel availability is uncertain. Wisconsin must import 100% of its fossil fuel, but we have abundant renewable resources. We need to tap into those resources to safeguard our energy future, as well as create jobs here in the state and protect our environment.
