Wisconsin court accepts wind farm challenge

Financial Crisis Posted on

The state Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether Wisconsin regulators properly approved a huge wind farm in southern Minnesota.

Regulators in Wisconsin and Minnesota gave Wisconsin Power & Light permission in 2009 to build the $450 million farm just north of Albert Lea.

Two Wisconsin groups representing energy consumers contend the Wisconsin Public Service Commission should have applied stiffer approval criteria to the project. The commission has countered that such standards don't apply to out-of-state facilities.

The 4th District Court of Appeals asked the Supreme Court to take the case directly. Online court records indicate the high court has accepted the case, with the first briefs due in mid-January.
