Hamburg against the wind?  

Hamburg Town officials have begun considering a moratorium on windmill energy in the town, designed to keep the Steel Winds project at the former Bethlehem Steel site in Lackawanna, from putting up more turbines in their town without scrutiny.

Board members heard several pro-windmill comments during a public hearing on the moratorium Monday night. Supporters praised the project as a way to rejuvenate the fallow – and in some cases- toxic Bethlehem site.

“You can’t possibly be from this earth, if you see the site as it is today and expect green grass.. and nice meadows,” says Mark Mitskovsky of Steel Winds project sponsor BQ Energy.

The Hamburg Town Board is expected to vote on the issue in May.
