NY AG Revises Code of Conduct for NY Windpower

Over 50,000 wind turbines are currently turning and creating renewable energy in almost every state, but their existence and regulation remain a matter of significant controversy. In 2011, the State of New York passed a wind turbine sighting law that largely preempted local government control, and this week the NY AG issued a revised "Code of Conduct" designed to ensure greater transparency and limit corruption and conflict of interest.   I know of no other AG who has taken this step.
