Wind Farm Approved by State for PBC Sugar Cane Fields

Wind Farm Approved by State for PBC Sugar Cane Fields

State regulators have approved an energy-producing wind farm - with towering, whirling blades - planned for Palm Beach County sugar cane fields.

According to the SunSentinel, the Sugarland Wind proposal calls for building at least 114 wind-catching, Statue of Liberty-sized turbines that would be spread across 13,000 acrews of farmland in western Palm Beach County.

Environmental groups object to the proposed location of the turbines, saying they pose a big risk to birds.

Final approval must come from the feds.
