My name is Marcia Krause and I am a Wacouta Township resident. I have lived in the same home for almost 55 years. I attended the Goodhue County commissioner meeting Tuesday, March 21, where the proposed Wildwood Community Solar Garden was on the agenda. I have many concerns in regards to this proposed solar garden. Mark Andrew, from GreenMark Solar, as the applicant, and Howard Stenerson, the landowner, discussed with the board what their plan entails. "The goal is to generate clean, renewable energy," Andrew said.
