The article discusses the need for some U.S. states facing significant farm development to examine the uniform statewide siting rules adopted and suspended in Wisconsin that geared towards allowing development of wind energy. The rules would allow limited property rights to non-participants and prevent localities from banning wind farms. An overview of the Muscarello v. Ogle County Board of Commissioners case that represents opposition to wind farm development is also offered.
