Nedpower Mt Storm project illegal turbine sitings diagrams  

The Nedpower project seems to be managed with complete distain for people’s rights and for federal regulations.

The latest findings are that three turbines located at the intersection of the Grass Ridge road and the local access road shown above are almost certainly within 800 ft of at least one residence. As shown in the map diagram below.

The map shows the sitings involved and the photograph below shows the construction occurring of the upper two turbines.

Once again Nedpower’s claim to be a “Good Neighbor in Grant County” that misled the WV PSC in their original decision is looking completely transparent. When given an entire mountain top on which to site turbines – they immediately choose locations that are cheapest for them – namely directly next to existing roads and properties. Instead of trying to minimize the impact on residents, that is the last thought on their engineers minds. In fact given the blatant siting of these turbines – the engineers have clearly been given carte blanche to disregard any aspects relating to impacts either human or environmental.
Notice all these turbines are within a few hundred feet or less of the roads themselves.

Nedpower were obviously also counting on the nuisance law suit against them to be dismissed. Instead the case is back in court and Nedpower now have to answer not only nuisance charges but also illegal siting charges.
