An aviation "win" perhaps!

The board of Sedgwick County, Kan., commissioners has approved new restrictions on wind and solar facilities.
The board approved amendments to the Community Investments Plan and Unified Zoning Code, which addresses commercial wind and solar energy operations. Specifically, the amendments allow commercial solar systems that meet certain development and performance standards; allow small wind and solar systems on individual properties that comply with specific guidelines; and prohibit commercial wind systems in the City of Wichita and unincorporated areas of Sedgwick County.
“After a thorough analysis of public input, airport locations and residential development patterns, commercial wind energy systems have been deemed incompatible with our area,” says David Dennis, chairman. “Going forward, solar panels will still be welcome in our community. Kansans have a long history of being good stewards of our natural resources, and I’m pleased to continue that tradition in Sedgwick County.”
