Goodhue County Wind Fight Pits Pickens Against Eagles
There's going to be some eagle slicing and dicing if a big wind energy project goes up just south of Red Wing. That's the claim from a coalition opposed to the wind project planned by T. Boone Pickens' American Wind Alliance. Mary Hartman says the 48 planned wind turbines will cause major problems in the bald eagle nesting area
Today, reps from Xcel energy are scheduled to visit the site of the wind development. Xcel is set to renew an energy purchase agreement with Pickens' company. Hartman hopes Xcel backs out once it sees the potential disruption for wildlife.
