Dozens of Bernal-area residents showed up at this week’s County Commission meeting to seek tougher restrictions for wind farms.
They are responding to an effort by Chicago-based Invenergy to put up wind turbines in their area.
The company has yet to submit an application to the county, but it has signed a two-year option on more than 7,000 acres of state trust land atop the mesa for the turbines.
Residents say they’re concerned about the unsightliness of the turbines, the noise and the effects on wildlife.
