A vote on whether to build a big wind farm in southern DeKalb County has been delayed.Florida Power and Light wants to erect a wind farm with 151 turbines not far from another wind farm in neighboring Lee County.

But many homeowners near the site worry about noise levels and property values.

Florida Power and Light now says it will guarantee against any property value loss.

Because of that, a vote by the DeKalb County planning and zoning committee has been put off for at least a month.
