Just wanted to let you all to know that the site certificate for the Helix wind project has expired! Iberdrola did not start construction by 8/5/14 and thus the Oregon Dept of Energy and EFSC are revoking their site certificate for this wind scam.
We are relieved beyond measure. Life is good here in our little canyon and we sure would like it to stay that way. No wind farms needed!!!!
I want to take time to thank the people who came to help us when we were fighting this wind project. A special “THANK YOU” to Commissioner Clinton Reeder for his time and sharing of his knowledge. Mr. Reeder is truly a one in a million …… another person to thank, would be Richard Jolly, president of Blue Mt Alliance. He was relentless in keeping ODOE on their toes. He never gave up and was always a source of hope – even when things looked the worst. Irene Gilbert was a staunch supporter and was in the trenches fighting this project with us. She also filed a contested case in opposing this wind scam.
Many, many more folks that came to testify or just be eyes on ODOE …… we appreciate them all!
Thank you all again. I wanted to share the GREAT news! Cindy
Editor’s note: “ODOE staff will recommend EFSC terminate the second amended site certificate for the facility at its next regularly scheduled meeting.”
