The fight to stop Black Rock Wind Farm continues

There are many folks actively fighting to stop Black Rock Wind Farm.  33 letters of protest have been submitted and 30 of those were submitted in the past 9 days.  A petition to intervene have been submitted.  The intervenor will be filing testimony in the next two weeks and then attending the evidentiary hearing on September 11th.

So the fight continues!!  Please keep spreading the word about this web site and informing those without internet access about the details so that they can send in protest letters.  See the other post with the flyer.  We are handing the flyer out to everyone we can and you should also.



Thanks!
