Learn about industrial wind energy during this presentation by Lisa Linowes, Executive Director of Industrial Wind Action (www.windaction.org) in New Hampshire.  What impact would industrial wind energy have on towns and neighborhoods in Connecticut, especially in the northwest corner? What impact would it have on the environment?  Here’s your chance to ask questions and find out more.

Meet members of the Committee for Responsible Energy Decisions in Granville, Massachusetts (http://cred-granville.org/the-facts/), who are also facing industrial wind development.

Two wind farms (a total of six 1.6MW, 492-ft turbines) are proposed for Flagg Hill Road and Rock Hall Road in Colebrook.  The Connecticut Siting Council has scheduled public hearings on these applications at the Northwestern Regional School #7 (100 Battistoni Drive, Winsted CT 06098) on Tuesday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, March 23 at 6:30 p.m.

Your neighborhood or your town could be the site of the next proposals!
