Wind Energy Systems include, but may not be limited to, Small Wind Energy Turbines which include Building Mounted Turbines and Tower Mounted (free-standing) Turbines. The potential regulations do not currently allow Large Wind Energy Turbines (Utility scale) on any lots in the Village of Gurnee.
I have long thought of setting up a wind turbine, my approach was to build it, set it up, and when the village harassed me about code, create a media firestorm making them look like idiots. Although, this might be some interesting insight into why we as a people aren't advancing in technology. Everything from free power, to clothing is regulated in the form of some type of tax, or process that impedes. This is the first town to announce a public hearing about the subject, so I can only assume people have started popping them up, and the village wants their cut of these people's money.
