Suburban DeWitt considers wind regulation
Syracuse.com reports (9/4) on efforts by the Town of DeWitt (in Onondaga County, near Syracuse) to regulate wind energy conversion systems:
Suburban DeWitt is the latest town to grapple with how to handle wind turbines. The planning board is proposing an ordinance that would ban from residential properties the tall, bladed turbines most typically in use, chair Michael Lazar said. But the ordinance would allow another, less common type of wind conversion generator – a vertical axis wind turbine, he said.
