Wind Energy Project Moves Forward

CENTRE, Ala. (July 18, 2013)—A wind project is moving forward in Alabama as a Texas-based renewable energy company plans to build wind turbines atop a scenic mountain ridge in 2014.

Austin-based project developer Pioneer Green intends to install eight wind turbines on private property near Centre, Ala., along the Shinbone Ridge in Cherokee County beginning next year.

The company said in a statement that the 120- to 160-foot blades, which will be mounted atop posts between 250 and 350 feet tall, are expected to generate enough power to light half the homes in Cherokee County.

Some residents in the area are still trying to decide if the development is a good fit for communities nearby.
