PSC to hold Glacier Farms public hearings (4:32 p.m. 10/26/09)
Published: October 26, 2009
The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin will hold public hearings on We Energies’ application to construct the Glacier Hills Wind Park in Columbia County, according to the commission.
The hearings will be held at 3 and 7 p.m. Nov. 4 at Randolph Town Hall in Friesland with Administrative Law Judge Michael Newmark presiding.
We Energies filed an application with the PSC on June 18, 2008, for approval to construct the wind farm. The project consists of 90 wind turbines with a total capacity of up to 207 megawatts. The turbines would be in an area of about 17,300 acres and would be connected by underground electrical cables. If approved, the wind farm would be connected to an existing 138-kilovolt electric transmission line that runs near the site.
If residents cannot attend the public hearings but would like to provide comments, they can do so on the PSC’s Web site through Wednesday.
