This week, the county’s four community-access cable stations will begin airing video of a public hearing on the proposed Wind Energy Siting Reform Act (WESRA), held Sept. 7 at Jiminy Peak.

WESRA would expedite development of wind plants throughout the Commonwealth.

The hearing was convened by the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy, of which state Sen. Benjamin Downing is co-chair.

Thirty-six people, most of them from communities in western Massachusetts, testified during the six-hour session.

Cable stations will air the testimony in three two-hour parts. Serving South County, CTSB’s Channel 18 will screen the hearing’s first part this Friday at 8:30 p.m. The second part will show on Saturday at 7 p.m., and the third part on Sunday, also at 7 p.m. The same schedule will be repeated the following weekend, Oct. 28, 29 and 30.

In Pittsfield, Dalton, and Richmond, the first two-hour part will air this Friday at 7 p.m. on CityLink, PCTV’s Government Access Channel 18. It will run there again on Saturday at 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. Watch listings for initial air times of the other two parts.

In North County, NBCTC’s Government Access Channel 17 will show the first part this Friday at 8:30 p.m.; the second part on Saturday at 7 p.m.; and the third part on Sunday, also at 7 p.m. In addition, the entire hearing will run without interruption on Thursday, Oct. 20, and again Thursday, Oct. 27, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on each day.
