Findings favor wind turbine project

NEW BRITAIN – A decision by the Connecticut Siting Council on a proposed wind turbine project in Prospect is not expected until May 12, but findings on the project presented on Monday by the council’s staff all but guarantee approval.

Members of Save Prospect Inc., a group of neighbors fighting the project, said they are prepared to continue their battle in court if the council approves the project.

Council members on Monday went over a draft of a fact-finding report regarding the application of BNE Energy Inc. of West Hartford to install two 1.6-megawatt wind turbines at a 67.5-acre parcel at 178 New Haven Road in Prospect. The same company is proposing installing six turbines in Colebrook. That petition is pending.

If the Prospect project is approved May 12, it will be the first commercial wind project to be approved in the state.
