Residents oppose wind farm
One backs project; he may get turbines
ROCK FALLS – JC Henrekin, a fourth-generation farmer from Deer Grove, thought a wind farm was a good idea at first. He changed his mind.
Henrekin was among a number of Deer Grove residents who spoke out Wednesday. They attended the last of the public hearings for Ireland-based Mainstream Renewable Power’s nine proposed turbines in southeastern Whiteside County.
“The direction of the pendulum switched hard,” Henrekin told the Whiteside County Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday. “I don’t want [wind turbines] at my back door or on my farm.”
