(Victor Valley)– The developer of the North Peak Wind Project has withdrawn its application, bringing the proposal to an end.
The North Peak project would have built 71, 500-foot wind turbines on 16.4 square miles of mountain ridges overlooking the Victor Valley.
In July, San Bernardino County Supervisors Robert Lovingood and James Ramos sent a letter to the BLM strongly opposing the project.
“We cited anticipated harm to property values, viewsheds, Native American cultural resources, interference with radar tracking of aircraft and a wide variety of environmental concerns,” Lovingood said. “I am happy to report that the developer saw the wisdom in withdrawing this proposal.”
The wind turbines would have also bald eagles, golden eagles, bats and numerous migratory bird species that use the avian corridor along the ridgelines in question.
