Huge wind turbine proposed for Anheuser-Busch

Huge wind turbine proposed for Anheuser-Busch

FAIRFIELD - Stiff coastal breezes that often pelt Fairfield could turn blades on a single, massive wind turbine to help power the Anheuser-Busch brewery.

But a proposed turbine so tall that it would dwarf the brewery building must pass muster with the Solano County Airport Land Use Commission. The commission meets at 7 p.m. Thursday at the county Government Center, 675 Texas St.

Neither county staff nor Travis Air Force Base officials foresee any aviation dangers posed by the possible green energy project, which also must get approval from Fairfield.
