Charleston Gazette: Grant landowners to argue against proposed wind farm

April 05, 2006
Grant County property owners will appear at the Mineral County Courthouse in Keyser today to argue against a 400-foot-tall windpower project NedPower/Shell plans to build at Mount Storm.
Former Supreme Court Justice Richard Neely will represent seven local landowners in arguments before Judge Phillip Jordan scheduled for early this afternoon.
Some of the proposed wind turbines would be built near local homes, subjecting residents to constant low frequency vibrations and flickering lights to warn aircraft from approaching those turbines.
“The eyes of the industry are on this case,” said Linda Cooper, president of Citizens for Responsible Wind Power, based in Morgantown.
“West Virginia’s rural residents, while surrounded by natural beauty and wonders, have enough challenges without a huge powerful industry moving in and forcing them to move out,” Cooper said.
