Huron County agricultural group seeks moratorium on wind power projects


The Huron County Federation of Agriculture will be visiting municipalities throughout Huron County asking them to follow Huron East’s lead by passing interim control bylaws on commercial wind energy projects within their borders.

The federation’s directors discussed the current debate around wind turbine developments at their June meeting and passed two resolutions.
