Highland Wind Farm LLC told the Wisconsin Public Service Commission in a project update filed Jan. 22 that little progress is being made on its 102.5-MW wind project due to ongoing litigation.
“A formal start date for construction is difficult to estimate at this time because of pending litigation,” the update noted. The commission had approved the project, to be built in St. Croix County, in October 2013.
The company noted that on Dec. 11, 2015, St. Croix County extended a Special Exception Permit for the substation location. On Dec. 15, 2015, the state Department of Transportation extended all Tall Tower pemits for the project. And on Nov. 17, 2015, the Federal Aviation Administration extended all permits for the Highland Wind Farm.
