PSC agrees to reconsider Liberty Gap wind farm permit  


CHARLESTON, W.Va. West Virginia’s Public Service Commission has agreed to take a second look at a Pendleton County wind farm application.
The agency dismissed Liberty Gap Wind Force’s application on July 24th after finding the company refused to allow an opposition group’s consultant on its property.

The Friends of Beautiful Pendleton County sought access so its consultant could conduct hydrological and geological surveys.

The P-S-C says Liberty Gap must allow the consultant on the property no later than October 13th and pay for the consultant’s travel and lodging.

Liberty Gap must also agree to give the P-S-C until next March to make a decision on its application. A spokesman for the company says the conditions are acceptable.

Liberty Gap has proposed to build a 100-megawatt wind farm along a six-and-a-half-mile stretch along Jack Mountain near Franklin, which is a few miles from the Virginia line.

The P-S-C has set a hearing on the application for December 12th in Charleston.
