Wisconsins Businesses call for Sen. Lasee to end war on wind.

By on July 13, 2012

On Wednesday, Wisconsin Senator Frank Lasee appeared before the Public Service Comssision to continue his fight against wind turbines. Today, the Wisconsin Energy Business Association (WEBA) pushed back in a press release, "Wisconsin Businesses Call on Sen. Lasee to End His War on Wind."

From the press release: 

In another attempt to hinder wind development and economic growth in Wisconsin, state
Senator Frank Lasee (R-De Pere) is demanding that the Public Service Commission of
Wisconsin revisit the state’s uniform wind siting rule, PSC 128—a rule that is the product
of years of work by the Commission, a citizen advisory council, and industry experts. His
most recent attacks are based on the demonstrably false claim that wind energy facilities
cause adverse health impacts.
“Senator Lasee’s ongoing hostility towards Wisconsin’s wind industry is preventing real
economic growth,” said Chris Kunkle of the Wisconsin Energy Business Association.
“National companies looking to invest in Wisconsin’s economy see these unwarranted and
baseless attacks and continue to stay out of Wisconsin.”

WEBA represents over 70 solar, wind, biofuels and energy companies in Wisconsin.
