A news item on page A1 of the Saturday, Aug. 31, edition listed the incorrect date for an upcoming article on the Washington Supreme Court’s Whistling Ridge Energy Project. The story will be in the Sept. 7 issue.
In an opinion released on Aug. 29, the court denied an appeal filed by Friends of the Columbia Gorge that challenged the legitimacy of the site certification agreement for the Whistling Ridge Energy Project. The wind farm is planned to be located on private timberland in Skamania County.
Though located outside the National Scenic Area, critics are concerned that some of its 35 wind turbines would be visible from the Gorge. However, Jason Spadaro, president of SDS Lumber and Whistling Ridge Energy Partners, has said in the past that economic factors and a reduction in the project’s size may put the wind farm’s future in doubt.
