Wind farm a threat to scenic vistas  

Credit:  Letters | Tri-City Herald | March 28 | www.tri-cityherald.com ~~

I live in Benton County and am opposed to the Horse Heaven Wind Farm being proposed by Scout Energy. The wind farm, as proposed, would be located on the ridges overlooking the Tri-Cities and extend for 24 miles. The windmills would be on average taller than 2 football fields vertically extended or taller than the Space Needle in Seattle. I don’t think this is what we want for our legacy for future generations.

Most of us that have hiked Badger Mountain and the ridges appreciate the wide sweeping views we have of the Columbia River, Mount Adams, Mount. St. Helens, Steptoe Butte and Frenchmen Hills. The majestic open spaces we enjoy would be diminished by this very visible project. Our area is already exploring small nuclear reactors, solar and other green energy generating solutions. Please voice your opposition by sending an email to commissioners@co.benton.wa.us
