American Experiment’s Wind Energy Campaign Comes to Freeborn County

If you haven’t read American Experiment’s explosive report on wind energy, Energy Policy in Minnesota: The High Cost of Failure, you should.

Freeborn County has been the scene of growing opposition to noisy, unsightly, unproductive and land-devouring wind turbine farms.
