Current zoning restrictions in Lincoln all but prevent homeowners from placing small wind turbines on their property. Some people would like to see those rules changed.
It wasn't all that long ago that people accepted large television antennas and satellite dishes on roofs and in back yards. Would people also accept the "unsightliness" of wind turbines? Would you?
It's probably a moot point for me. I don't think I could get enough wind on my property on a regular basis to justify the cost of a turbine. Nor could most of my neighbors. I could go for some nice solar panels -- or better yet, solar shingles -- though.
