Repeal the PBR for Industrial Wind Projects

Rocky Forge Wind project is not a small wind energy project and should not be ruled under the PBR.

The PBR does not take into account the adverse health effects wind turbines may have on people.

The PBR does not offer adequate protection from wind turbines for Bald Eagles , Golden Eagles and endangered bat species.

The PBR does not protect our beautiful mountain views from unsightly industrial wind projects.

The negative impact of the Rocky Forge Wind project does not stop at the county line. The PBR does nothing to address those negative impacts on surrounding counties.

The PBR should be repealed because it is totally biased in favor of industrial wind projects and discriminates against anyone or anything that may be negatively impacted by those projects.
