Madison County approves updated wind regulations

Following all the talk, commissioners voted 3-0 to approve the updated regulations, which are more stringent than the original regulations enacted more than 10 years ago.

In addition, the county’s moratorium on accepting wind farm applications has been allowed to expire.

That means that Madison County is again open for business for possible wind farm construction and operation although, realistically, it isn’t likely there will by any construction for a couple of years — if at all.
