Residents amend windmill lawsuit

PORTAGE, Pa. – The battle wages on in Blair County, where a couple has filed an amended complaint to their lawsuit against Gamesa Energy and the Allegheny Ridge Wind Farm. This time they’ve included expert testimony.

Todd and Jill Stull’s home in Juniata Township sits within a half-mile of six wind turbines.

The Stulls first filed a lawsuit in April, but according to Jill Stull, after Gamesa objected to their claims that the noise coming from those turbines has been more than a nuisance, it has impacted their health, they’ve refiled. Stull said this time they have an environmentalist and a sound engineer on board. While their problems are still the same, they hope the words from the experts carry a little more weight.

Stull said they’ve been dealing with the noise and the vibrations in their home from the turbines for a year and a half. She said they don’t even care about the money, they just want the turbines to stop for them and their neighbors.

Officials from Gamesa said they can’t comment on the lawsuit.
