Somerset Lighthouse Wind Project

Wind Turbines

The Sierra Club strongly endorses wind energy as one of the forms of energy generation that will be required to move us off fossil fuels.  However, neither the Niagara Group nor national Sierra Club have endorsed the Lighthouse Project proposed by Apex at this time because the process is just beginning and we will wait to see the final siting and plan before we give our endorsement.  However, we actively work to promote the benefits of wind as a necessary strategy and to rebut all forms of misinformation circulated by individuals and groups.
