Group forms to save ridgelines from windmills 

Concerned citizens of the Deerfield Valley, and as far away as the Berkshires, have come together to form “Save Vermont Ridgelines.”

The current proposal before the public service board, to allow or deny construction of an industrial wind power plant on 80 acres of highly visible United States Forest Service- controlled ridgelines, has brought us together to consider the scope and consequences of these 17 410-feet tall machines, with flashing lights stretched across one of the area’s most prominent ridgelines.

Our concerns are focused on the fact that the turbines will be directly in the path of migratory birds and bats and will invade the natural habitats of bear and other hibernating animals. Their construction will displace enormous amounts of mountaintops and alter the flow of streams and waters surrounding the project. Their presence will affect the second-home market and also tourism, which is the main industry of this area, and there will be health concerns for nearby residents from the noise generated by the turbine blades.

The goal of our group is to inform the public of the full intent and consequences of this proposed wind experiment. The effect it will have on nature, property values, and the economy of the area must be weighed against what the people of the Deerfield Valley would gain. Our group works together to learn and enlighten. Online information is available at www.clearskyvt.org. We welcome new members and are raising funds to further our cause. Donations to “Save Vermont Ridgelines” can be mailed to P.O. Box 1414, Wilmington, VT 05363.
