Ordinance to allow small wind turbines in the city is discussed by Willmar Planning Commission

The commission began discussing wind turbine regulations over a month ago after a local citizen asked if he could erect a small turbine in a commercial area to charge golf cart batteries. The current zoning ordinance has no provision for regulating wind turbines, said Andrew Bjur, Planning Commission chair and renewable energy proponent.
