Public votes down wind station
1 November 1997
Plans for a joint German-Danish cross border wind station have been stymied.

" Maybe the project was too big and efforts to inform the local population began much too late," he said. The public vote on the wind station, from a survey carried out in the German parishes of Jardelung, Böxland and Vesby, was organised by the Bundesverband Landschaftschutz, a small organisation despite its grand federal title.
