AVON, S.D. (AP) — A public meeting on a proposed 100-turbine wind farm in Bon Homme and Charles Mix counties drew both opponents and proponents.

The state Public Utilities Commission is deciding whether to grant a permit for the 36,000-acre wind farm proposed by Dell Rapids-based Prevailing Winds LLC.

Regulators held a public input meeting Wednesday in Avon. Opponents who spoke said the large farm would be an eyesore, while proponents said alternative energy is good for the environment.

People and groups have until Aug. 29 to file for party status, which would allow them to present witnesses and evidence during a formal public hearing.
