Anne Arundel OKs homeowner windmills

By Washington Post editors

The Anne Arundel County Council has unanimously approved a zoning change that will allow homeowners to build energy-generating windmills.

Council Vice Chairman Ron Dillon says Monday's vote is the first avenue toward alternative energy.

The windmills can be as high at 125 feet, but most would be shorter. Installing them on property smaller than three acres would require a public hearing and county approval.

Some residents had complained that towering windmills would reduce property values and create noise.

Curious as to how much power would typically be generated. Any Elec Engineers around?
