San Miguel County plans to decide on an ordinance regulating wind turbines next month.
This week, the County Commission voted to begin the process of adopting an ordinance.
The proposed ordinance would require that wind turbines be at least three miles from occupied homes — a provision that the industry staunchly opposes.
The county doesn’t have any wind farms now, but Chicago-based Invenergy has been planning wind turbines along the Bernal Mesa in the Valley. The company has yet to turn in an application to the county.
