As you may or may not be aware, Great Lakes Wind / Exelon is hosting an Open House today at the Blissfield American Legion from 5 – 8. They will purportedly unveil the layout of their proposed industrial wind complex in Ogden and Palmyra Townships.
That precise information was requested by Riga Township residents and the IICC for nearly two (2) years, but GLW / Exelon repeatedly indicated that they could not provide that information to Riga Township residents because there was no way to determine where the industrial wind turbines would be located until the Riga Township Board passed a zoning ordinance amendment.
Amazingly, now that their project is in serious jeopardy, GLW / Exelon will be announcing the location of their proposed turbines in Ogden and Palmyra Townships today – despite the fact that no ordinances have been passed in either township! It appears that GLW / Exelon may have been withholding information from the Riga Township residents.
As always, members of the ever vigilant IICC will be present at GLW / Exelon’s Open House today, asking the tough questions that need to be answered. Come enjoy the ensuing fireworks!
