Wind-energy ordinance passes on first reading in DeKalb

proposal allows small wind-energy conversion systems to be attached to buildings or freestanding in areas zoned as commercial and industrial, as well as any publicly owned land, like a park or school

Industrial properties can have towers as high as 75 feet, including building height. These are consistent with current building height maximums

If an entity wants to put up an attached system taller than 10 feet, multiple systems or a freestanding wind tower, a special use permit would be required. The power generated would be primarily used by the property owner, where the systems are located, and would not be sold to utility companies.
