A power company is eyeing portions of Lookout Mountain in Northwest Georgia as a possible location for wind turbines, something that some area residents say they don’t want.

“It’s just a no-no situation anyway you look, not just on Lookout Mountain, but all over the world,” said J.B. Smith, who was approached by Oregon-based Iberdrola Renewables about his property in Cloudland, Ga., atop Lookout Mountain in Chattooga County.

In talks with representatives from the company, residents say Iberdrola proposes about 120 turbines. Company officials, though, said they did not have any figures because the project is still in a developmental stage.

Residents said they oppose the turbines for several reasons, including possible decreases in property values, the noise that has been associated with the turbines, environmental harm and losses in tourism.
