Wind Turbines and Solar Panels in town

KCCI had a story recently on the issue of alternative energy sources in towns.

“There’s not really wide acceptance of it in urban areas, with small lots,” said Sam Perry, planner with the City of Ames.City administrators are facing new pressure from residents who are interested in incorporating the technology in their homes. Currently, most Iowa cities limit the construction of wind and solar generation to lots that are at least one to two acres.”That really cuts out 80 to 90 percent of residential subdivision lots,” said Perry.
