John Droz has kindly reported on the Military Affairs Commission (MAC) meeting that took place today over in Jacksonville. There were roughly two dozen in attendence, with about a half-dozen of those being active military (including three retired Generals) and the remainder being from ACT, the Allies for Cherry Point’s Tomorrow.
John spoke for fifteen minutes or so on Torch Energy’s proposed Mill Pond wind turbine farm, with a particular emphasis on the military aspects. His talk was well received, and he spent another forty-five minutes or so responding to follow-up questions.
At the end of the meeting, the Committee voted to formally request that the NC General Assembly “upgrade” H484 to better address the issues that area residents have come to recognize about wind energy.
