Oppose Granite Mountain Wind Project, Apple Valley

The proposed Granite Mountain Wind Energy Project (Granite Wind Project) would install approximately 27 wind turbines and ancillary electric facilities on approximately 2,640 acres of public and private lands in the Granite Mountains between Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley in San Bernardino County. The residents of Apple Valley and surrounding areas OPPOSE this project! Twenty eight 415 Ft. high wind turbines will be visible to many Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley residents. This can\'t possibly NOT effect the value of your house. There are also concerns about the impact that construction, traffic, and visual pollution like the over head transmission lines will have on our communities. Deteriorating road conditions, noise, strobing lights, property devaluation, disturbance of wildlife, are just a few of the issues we are concerned with. But most importantly, we are paying for them with our tax dollars. Consider this: Because of incredible tax advantages, huge corporations have invested heavily in wind power. In 2002 and 2003, Florida Power and Light realized $2.2 billion in profits but paid NO federal income taxes for either year. Additionally, they add to their earnings by selling

  • Corbin Why dont you go clean up all of the garbage left in the desert after drinking and breaking beer bottles,shooting tv sets, propane tanks,dumping camper shells, unwanted vacuum cleaners, paint cans, couches, pick up all of the bullets and shotgun shells, clay pigeons. Then we can talk about how ugly the windmills are going to be.

  • Jennifer We should do more solar power parking lots before we invade the beautiful desert!

  • Michelle The power lines are very close and we are concerned with higher amounts EMFs. Also concerned about the very large turbines in our community.
