Iowa Supreme Court declines to hear appeal in turbine case

FAIRBANK, Iowa (AP) — The state Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from an energy company ordered to remove three wind turbines in northeast Iowa, handing another victory to a group of local residents fighting the project.

Tuesday's decision leaves in place an order that Mason Wind and Optimum Renewables must take down the 445-foot (136-meter) turbines built in 2016 for an estimated $11 million, The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported. Mason Wind was ordered to take down the turbines after property owners and city officials accused the company of violating county zoning laws.
