Court backs PSC on Greenbrier wind project  

The state Supreme Court on Monday said that the Public Service Commission acted within its authority in approving a proposal to build 124 giant wind-power turbines along 23 miles of Greenbrier County ridges.

The court issued a unanimous, unsigned decision that turned down challenges of the PSC decision filed by opponents of the Beech Ridge Energy LLC project.

Mountain Communities for Responsible Energy argued that the PSC ignored its own permit regulations and did not obtain adequate information about the wind project’s potential impacts before approving it.

The Monday ruling is the second major wind power decision by the Supreme Court in the last year. In June 2007, the court voted 4-1 to send back to circuit court a nuisance case seeking an injunction against NedPower Mount Storm LLC’s plans to erect 200 wind turbines along a 14-mile stretch of the Allegheny Front in Grant County.
