Minnesota’s Wind Energy Strength Continues

22 Jun

According to an article from MinnPost, while there remains controversy surrounding wind turbines and their placement (see articles previously posted on this blog: 01/12/10, 02/08/10, 04/02/10, 04/20/10), the wind energy sector generally continues to grow in strength and influence of Minnesota.  The article (which can be found here) indicates that the State’s executive branch is still strongly in support of wind energy, as well as members of the legislative branch.  The court also references the Court of Appeals’ decision regarding the Cap X 345-kV (which can be found here) in which the Court of Appeals upheld approval of the project to build 3 high voltage transmission lines across the State, in large part to service wind energy needs.

This blog entry is written by Chris Renz, a shareholder at Thomsen Nybeck. Chris practices in the litigation area of the firm with primary focus on wind energy-related lease litigation, real estate litigation, employment litigation, townhome and condominium law, and criminal law, particularly as the prosecutor for the Metropolitan Airports Commission
