The August 28, 2007 DEP informal meeting followed by the public hearing
on Gamesa’s proposed wind facility on Shaffer Mountain in Somerset
County, PA was videotaped and is now available for $15. The DVD is
about 5 hours long, with Gamesa’s consultants presenting powerpoints for
the first hour or so, followed by the public testimonies for the next 4
hours. The presentations by watershed groups and concerned citizens may
be helpful to citizens fighting wind projects in other areas. DEP has
not made a decision yet on the application, since Gamesa will not submit
their final technical application until October 28.
Please send a check to SOAR for $15 if you would like a DVD. The
address is: SOAR, P. O. Box 178, Everett, PA 15537. The $15 covers
shipping and handling.
