Proposal that could have led to wind farm is nixed

 .

Yavapai County supervisors rejected the proposed construction of a meteorological tower that could have served as a test for a possible wind farm on a ranch northwest of Prescott.

The Daily Courier reports that Pacific Wind Development Inc. wanted to build the tower with the intention to establish the suitability of the location for wind-power turbines.

The lessee of the land objected to the project and voiced concerns about the noise and environmental impacts of such a project.

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors rejected the proposal in a 3-0 vote Monday.

Chris Bergen, a developer for a business that owns Pacific Wind Development, says the company would continue to scout new locations, possibly in Yavapai County.
