PROSPECT – In a surprise straw vote on Monday, six out of seven members of the state Siting Council indicated they will vote against a wind turbine project in Prospect.

Council members expressing concern of the size of the turbines and the fact that they will be located close to homes.

A formal vote is expected by the Siting Council on May 12 on a proposal by BNE Energy Inc. of West Hartford to install two 1.6-megawatt wind turbines on a 67.5-acre parcel at 178 New Haven Road in Prospect.

A decision to deny the project, rare for a board with a better than 90 percent approval rate for projects, could also affect another commercial wind turbine project proposed by BNE in Colebrook. BNE has two applications pending before the Siting Council for six 1.6-megawatt turbines in Colebrook.
