One thought on “RES Completes Wind Farm in PA

  1. RES Americas brags about its construction of Twin Ridges in Somerset Co., PA and all the money that changes hands. What about all the birds and bats that will die from turbines on migration flyways?
    What about the noise issues to those people living nearby?
    What about the habitat fragmentation and impacts to the watershed?
    Or, as Wendell Berry said, “The great enemy of freedom is the alignment of political power with wealth. This alignment destroys the commonwealth – that is, the natural wealth of localities and the local economies of household, neighborhood, and community – and so destroys democracy, of which the commonwealth is the foundation and practical means.”
