Supervisors rescind wind zoning  

Credit:  By James Burger, Bakersfield Californian | Nov 13, 2012 | www.tehachapinews.com ~~

Kern County supervisors eliminated old wind-energy zoning on land near Sand Canyon north of Tehachapi Tuesday.

And in doing so, they got support from a number of the biggest critics of the area’s wind energy development.

Supervisor Zack Scrivner said the Sand Canyon area, which is home to the Tomo-Kahni State Historic Park and has a lack of existing energy transmission lines needed to support wind development, is not the right place for the decades-old zoning.

Property owners in the area complained that they bought the land hoping to profit from the development of wind energy and it was unfair for the county to take that right away.

But supervisors, though sensitive to the concern, voted to support the elimination of the zone.
