New Wind Farm Rules in McLean County

McLean County has a new set of rules for incoming wind farms. Before, the county did not have guidelines specific to wind farms, even though there are several in the county. The county board approved the new standards at a meeting Tuesday morning, to minimize the impact of new farms on people who live nearby. Wind turbines have to be at least 1,500 feet from a home, the can't be taller than 550 feet, and a wildlife study must show minimal impact on the other.
