"In instituting a ban on wind energy, Baldwin County has sacrificed an opportunity to boost local economic development, and it has given up the chance to capitalize on a local energy resource that is clean, cost effective, abundant and homegrown," he said.

Former pharmaceutical scientist Dave Perry said he wanted the commission to extend the moratorium by a month or two to continue considering the possible impacts and long-term effects the ordinances could have.

"Twenty-five or 30 years from now we all may be dead, but the next generation may want to embrace this," Perry said. "They will have look at this ordinance and will have to make changes to this. Let's try to get it right the first time."
