New Bill Shines Light on Solar, Wind Companies

There is a plan at the Wisconsin Capitol to give local governments the final say over whether new wind and solar farms can be built. 

State Rep. Ty Bodden from Stockbridge introduced the legislation yesterday.  His plan would require solar and wind farm companies to get an okay from each community where they want to build before they can go to the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.  His legislation also bans the PSC from okaying wind and solar projects without the say-so from local leaders. Bodden says local leaders should be the ones to decide what their communities look like, not planners in Madison.
