Wind Towers May Pose Light Pollution Threat

This graphic simulation of the Wind Turbine Generating Facilities on Poor Mountain looking to the SE toward Cahas Mountain (left background) describes a potential visual annoyance of great magnitude relative to the existing radio and tv towers on Poor Mountain. The existing radio and tv tower warning lights are somewhat annoying particularly on overcast nights and evenings. As currently proposed, the wind turbine locations spread out more toward the Bent Mountain plateau and will be more than twice as high as the radio & tv towers reach into the clouds thereby spreading the range of randomly flashing red light.
