We just received a building permit application for a wind turbine on a single family lot in our small city. Our woefully out of date zoning ordinance does not, of course, mention wind turbines and we are having a good deal of trouble figuring out what to do with this application. I think we will have to send it to the zba for a determination, but I will have to give them some advice. I would be very interested to hear of any experience with residential wind turbines - both regulatory and practical. How are other areas regulating them?And has anyone here permitted one in an urban (or even suburban) area?
