Forest Wisconsin & the Highland Wind Farm

The town of Forest WI has concerns over the end results of the Highland Wind Farm. Forest has spent more than half-a-million dollars fighting the project at the Public Service Commission. 

The devastation from the Shirley Wind Farm is a prime example as to why the town is fighting this project. Please take a moment to visit each of these pages to learn why Forest wants to keep the wind turbines out and why they serve as a voice for other communities that may be at risk.

A Living Nightmare for One Farmer

This video tells the story of how the Shirley Wind Farm became a living nightmare for a farmer in Glenmore, Wisconsin and flipped his life upside down.

A once third-generation farmer, Kevin had to make the tough choice to auction off all of his cows after they got sick in the wake of the turbines. Many also died.
