Opposing the Rocky Forge Wind Turbines- Wind velocities are not sufficient to be viable

Please do not allow the Rocky Forge Wind Turbines to go forward.

There is simply not enough wind at that location for this project to be feasible.

The developer has never provided empirical anemometer readings (wind velocity and duration figures) by hour over a sufficient period of time to demostrate the viability of the project.

Instead the developer has provided wind velocity averages- and they are meaningless.

A proper wind study would prove my argument to be true - that they winds are simply insufficient to generate the projected power output.

Please reject this project.
