The decision also orders the Ford government to pay the company’s $126,500 in legal cost.

The wind farm project for 29 turbines has spent $230 Million so far, created 230 local construction jobs and will provide electricity at approximately half the price of typical residential rates, with no greenhouse gas emissions.

Even when considering emissions after doing a LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT that looks at the extraction of the raw materials, transportation, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, recycling etc … wind farms have been shown to break even for emissions after 8 months to a year.

Improvements are also being made to reduce environmental impacts during manufacturing and other phases.
