PSC sets public hearings on proposed wind farm  

The state Public Service Commission has scheduled two public hearings on a proposed wind farm along the Laurel Mountain ridgeline.

AES Laurel Mountain of Arlington, Va., wants to build up to 65 wind turbines along 8 miles of the ridgeline in Barbour and Randolph counties.

Comments will be accepted beginning at 1 p.m. May 7 at the Elkins City Building and at 7 p.m. May 7 at the Barbour County Courthouse.

An evidentiary hearing in the case is set for Aug. 4-8 at PSC headquarters in Charleston.

The windmill project would produce between 1,500 and 2,500 kilowatts of power, enough to provide electricity to up to 35,000 homes.
