Living in a Construction Zone

Installing a large wind energy project is a major construction operation.  The process can lead to major changes in typically quiet rural areas where most of these large projects are sited.  Good preparation by local officials and advance information for residents about what to expect are two crucial elements which can enable the construction phase of a project to proceed more smoothly. 

I was impressed by the quality of information and the thoroughness of the presentation in this recent article by the local print press in Albert Lea, MN seeking to inform their readers prior to the nearby construction of the Bent Tree project in Freeborn County.
