The State is moving forward with a new law that could free up regulation on wind farms in the state, leading to more alternative energy sources. On Tuesday August 10, 2010 some of the wind turbines were photographed in the Malone and St. Cloud area near Fond du Lac. Steve Apps-State Journal.

The turbines are part of the 88-turbine Blue Sky Green Field wind farm. New regulations being considered by the state Public Service Commission could open the way for more wind farms in Wisconsin.

(CT Published on 11/09/2011) The current controversy over wind siting rules in Wisconsin has effectively closed the door to any new wind energy projects of significance in the state.  This collection of 400-foot wind turbines towers over farmland in the town of Malone in northern Fond du Lac County.

(Published on 5/26/14) Measurements have indicated that the soil around wind turbines is drier and warmer than the surrounding region. This is a local effect impacting the wind farm area, not global temperatures.
