Why hasn't CFU built wind turbines here in Cedar Falls?

We’ve taken a serious look at doing so. The wind resource is significantly better in other parts of Iowa, producing more electricity per turbine. By building locally, however, we could avoid power transmission costs and bottlenecks. Unfortunately, building height restrictions rule out utility-sized wind turbines on the most suitable sites within CFU’s service area, because of proximity to the Waterloo airport.
