Sometimes, only a photo will do. The wind turbine shown here is 500 feet tall installed on a farm in Wisconsin and just like the ones proposed for North East township. Most of us are familiar with the size of a farm silo so this photo may begin to give you a sense of what these giants look like. This is only one turbine, the number planned for North East is anywhere from 50 to 75. Think about that.
The North East township planning board is currently discussing setback requirements for turbines just like this one. If you would like to learn more about these turbines or offer your input before a decision is made, please attend the next supervisor meeting on Monday, April 15th at 9AM.
Your input is needed to make sure these regulations are best for the entire community.
