Bill could re-ignite wind turbine debate in Tazewell County  

Credit:  WVVA | January 24, 2013 | www.wvva.com ~~

Although there are strict ordinances preventing tall structures – a new bill could re-ignite the issue of wind turbines in Tazewell County.

The new bill would allow renewable energy projects over 4 megawatts to bypass those regulations – meaning wind farms could be allowed on East River Mountain in Tazewell County – whether locals like it or not.

Senator Saslaw from Fairfax County introduced the bill – which now sets in a subcommittee – awaiting introduction to the House.
