Town hall meeting to be held
Wind energy company Gamesa Energy USA will be hosting a town hall meeting in order to discuss local projects and the industry in general, representatives announced.
The public forum will be held on from 7 to 8:30 p.m. June 12 at the Shade High School gymnasium, in Cairnbrook, company spokesman Neil Simpkins said.
Gamesa officials will be on hand to provide information about wind energy, construction plans and renewable energy in general, he said.
They will also address public concerns about specific projects like the Shaffer Mountain Wind Farm, he said.
The 30-turbine wind farm, which is projected to extend through parts of Shade and Ogle townships in Somerset County and Napier Township in Bedford County has generated much media coverage in the last six months as several local organizations have been working to block it.
