Allied Groups

Groups to fight ruling in wind farm case  

An environmental alliance that opposes two large wind farms planned for the Texas Gulf Coast will appeal a ruling that the group cannot intervene in a case now before the Public Utility Commission.

The Coastal Habitat Alliance had sought to intervene in a pending application before the PUC by American Electric Power to build a 21-mile, high-voltage transmission line to serve the project.

It also wants the PUC to hold public hearings on the project. But Friday, it got a setback when an administrative law judge rejected its request.

“I believe this ruling is legally incorrect,” said Jim Blackburn, attorney for the nine-member group formed to protect a migratory bird flyway from the wind project.

A spokesman said the alliance would ask the three PUC commissioners to reverse the judge’s ruling and allow it to participate.
