According to WJACTV.com, while two wind farm projects in Cambria County are moving forward, two others in the region are being shelved.
Tuesday’s Tribune-Democrat reported the Highland North Project in Adams and Summerhill townships is already generating electricity, and ground has been broken for the proposed 30-turbine Patton Wind Farm in the northern part of the Cambria County.
But plans for two other wind energy projects in the region are being scrapped. Plans for a 24-turbine wind farm on Dunning Mountain in Bedford County have been halted. Many people in the Bedford area had opposed the project.
In Clearfield County, plans for the Clover Run project are also coming to a halt. There, project officials blame the economy and the end of tax credits for renewable energy.
The Clearfield County project would have placed 40 turbines between Grampian and Luthersburg. The president of the group Save Our Allegheny Ridges called the decision a victory for landowners and their neighbors.
