Wind turbine appeal is continued by county  

Credit:  The Independent | March 12, 2015 | www.independentnews.com ~~

Alameda County Board of Supervisors continued to an indefinite date an appeal by Altamont Winds, Inc. (AWI) for a three-year extension of a use permit to operate 828 Altamont wind turbines that were due to be phased out by Oct. 31, 2015.

The matter was set for discussion on the agenda March 10, but was continued for further talks between the county and the applicant.

The Altamont is undergoing repowering with new turbines designed to reduce raptor deaths. AWI is planning to replace its 828 turbines with 18 larger machines, and wants a three-year extension from Oct. 31, 2015, in order to accomplish it.

The East County Board of Zoning Adjustment had rejected the AWI application for the extension. The denial was appealed to supervisors.
