There are two guest speakers who have accepted invitations for this October 2nd event.

Ted Hartke is an Illinois resident, currently living in Vermillion County, and has lived in a wind farm for over a decade.

According to posted flyers, topics of discussion at this event will include property rights, turbine height, different types of sounds potentially caused by turbines, equity wind energy zoning and trespass zoning, the effects of industrial wind turbines on property values, and living in a wind farm.
