WVa Supreme Court agrees to hear nuisance case against Nedpower

By a vote of 5:0 the WVa Supreme Court agree to hear the case.

To guage a sense of what the case involves and the impact on the local community - there is a selection of maps available showing the locations of the 82 turbines for the project.

Also available there is a GoogleEarth interactive map - where you can fly-by the project and zoom down to ground level to see the exact detail of each turbine location (install of GoogleEarth software required).

Overall this gives a sense of the closeness (often within 500 yards) of existing houses and camp sites around the VEPCO lake and the scale of the construction involving 14 miles of clearing of the terrain to site the turbines.
