Dominion Power reaffirms wind farm plans for Tazewell County

Posted:

A representative from Dominion Power reaffirmed the company's plan to bring wind power to Tazewell County.

Tuesday night, Emmett Toms gave a status report telling the Board of Supervisors there's no construction timeline primarily due to the county's Ridgeline Protection Ordinance.  However, Toms said that as long as Dominion owns the property designated for construction, they'll continue to pursue the project until someone steps forward to purchase the property.

Eastern District Supervisor Charles Stacy informed Toms that the public had objected to the wind turbine project and that county initiatives such as The Bluestone would be directly affected by wind turbines on the ridge.  Stacy said other developers have shown interest in the 2600 acre property.
