Iowa regulators approved a 591 MW wind project for MidAmerican Energy over objections from environmental groups that want the utility to stop burning coal.
The state’s controversial wind ban is set to end Jan. 1, unless its author makes a push to extend it.
The 11th-hour add-on to a 2014 state budget bill didn’t allow stakeholders to respond to proposal, a complaint says.
In Ford County, Illinois, what would otherwise be a routine election for county board has drawn outside interest from activists both opposed to, and in favor of, wind energy.
While wind energy is seeing pushback in other parts of Michigan, a project in the Upper Peninsula — largely benefiting a single landowner — could prove even more challenging.
