First wind turbine up on mountain

The first turbine in a wind energy project on Georgia Mountain in Vermont is up, according to David Blittersdorf, chief executive officer of AllEarth Renewables. The plan by Georgia Mountain Community Wind calls for two wind turbines in Milton and two in Georgia. The Burlington Free Press reported that some neighbors have fought the project, with legal action developing earlier this year when some opponents sought to camp in the project’s blast zone. (AP)
