The company that plans a wind farm in the Valley says a proposed three-mile setback from homes would kill the project.
Mark Jacobson, business development director for Chicago-based Invenergy, told the San Miguel County Commission this week that the three-mile rule would be far more than what other counties with wind farms require.
His firm proposed the county go with a 1,500-foot setback — or a little more than a quarter of a mile. Many counties have setbacks as short as 750 feet, Jacobson said.
