Valley micro wind energy approved

A Shenandoah Valley man has won approval for a wind-powered generator, according to a report this morning in the Staunton News-Leader . Unlike the controversial 19-tower array of 400-footers planned for Highland County, the lone tower that Mount Sidney resident John Root wants will stand just 120 feet tall, which the News-Leader says is lower than a nearby communications tower.
And even one of the more vocal critics, Rick Webb, seems to be endorsing the project, which has won approval from the Augusta County Board of Zoning Appeals.
