The future of wind turbines in Huron County goes before voters Tuesday.
The county already has the largest number of turbines in Michigan, with 475 turbines already operating.
Tuesday’s ballot questions would open the door to another hundred or more.
That’s not what farmer Robert Gaffke wants.
He raises cattle and sheep on his 200-acre organic farm in Port Hope. Gaffke doesn’t have any turbines on his property, but says the turbines are slowly spilling across the property line on his neighbor’s land. The blades make a noticeable wooshing sound.
