Population boom hastens wind farm upgrade
Wind turbines that will cost about $10 million each to put up around Illinois‘ central counties and Lake Superior state parks won’t be operational in 2014, according to t카지노 사이트he Wind Resources Council of Central Illinois.
The wind project that would bring 300 turbines to Illinois‘ north lake, along with two other power plants, will also be in jeopardy when an independent planning commission meets in December to determine whether the projects are economically viable. That decision would be sent back to the Planning and Zoning Commission for possible further review and approval.
The Wind Resources Council has warned that the decision could result in a $3.7-billion loss that must be covered by the state.
Officials with the Chicago Department of Water Management have said the federal EPA would not allow for further wind projects to be built in Illinois since the federal wind development program expired at the end of December.
However, the Wind Resources Council said in its statement on its website that the Chicago Department of Water Management has acknowledged that it’s the authority in the area and can review projects, but declined to state whether or not it’s going to allow the construction of any additional turbines along a stretch along Lake Michigan south of Chicago.
Chicago’s Department of Energy and the State of Illinois both have said their departments are reviewing the question of potential Wind Farms in Illinois.
Meanwhile, the Energy Department wil우리카지노l continue to monitor the proposed Wind Farms that the Wind Resources Council has warned will endanger the environment, wildlife and the people who live along the proposed sites. The DOE and the Department of Natural Resources are respons우리카지노ible for monitoring such projects.
