In New Hampshire, a bill that would put a moratorium on all wind farm development in that state is getting people riled up on both sides of the issue.
At a recent hearing, opponents of the moratorium argued that it would reduce investments in the state and eliminate jobs. Supporters say that wind farms could reduce property values and need to be stopped until a more comprehensive energy plan can be created.
Supporters of wind energy may need to continue working to further the cause of renewable energy in the United States to reduce the amount of CO2 being emitted into the air. Most supporters, like the developer in Wisconsin, think each battle is a fight worth fighting.
