Forcing Wind Projects on Communities

Forbes: "Five years ago, K. Darlene Park, a homeowner and anti-wind activist in Frostburg, Maryland, explained to me why she and so many other rural Americans are fighting the encroachment of large wind and solar projects. 'We feel this renewable energy push is an attack on rural America,' she said.

. . . .

"As siting wind and solar projects has gotten more difficult, big renewable companies are resorting to hardball legal tactics. The latest example came last month when Chicago-based Invenergy, the world’s largest privately held renewable energy company, sued Worth County, Iowa as part of an effort to force the county to accept a wind project the county doesn’t want."
