State oversight on wind energy facility siting – what do you think?

It’s Friday afternoon. Why not ask our readers a question.

There is increased debate in New York state regarding how well municipalities are equipped to handle the siting process of wind power facilities, particularly industrial scale facilities.

What do you think? (Potential answers show up in random order below.)
