Citizens vote against wind feasibility study

Swiss wind encountered a setback after the citizens of St Croix voted against a town council decision to spend CHF 30,000 (EUR 18,000) on a feasibility study for an 11 MW wind station near the town. A campaign against the project resulted in a local referendum, which voted down the idea. The wind lobby is disappointed as this was to be a key project for the industry, says Robert Horbaty of wind association Suisse Eole.
