Thanks for the wind votes
July 02,2012
I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to the Select Board members of the towns of Pittsford, Castleton, Hubbardton and West Rutland for their votes not in favor of Reunion Power’s proposal to install 20 500-foot wind turbines on Grandpa’s Knob and along Pittsford Ridge. These Board members put in much time and effort to learn about this proposed project and its potential positive and negative impacts. Their votes reflect that, after thoughtful consideration, the known and potential adverse impacts far outweigh any positive benefit.

We can all hope that Reunion Power will use these votes to understand that this project is not needed nor wanted in our communities and that Reunion will stop pursuing this proposal.

Thank you, Select Board members, for sending that message.

    Thank you Hubbardton, thank you Pittford, thank you Castleton and thank you West Rutland for your heroic efforts to keep this nightmare from becoming a reality….I am praying that the will of the people will prevail over greed.
