Aerial view of a small portion of the Allegheny Ridge Wind Project that impacts residents in Cambria and Blair Counties in southcentral PA. There are 3 phases to this project, which total 70 turbines, and fragments an Important Bird Area, the Allegheny Front.
The above sound file was recorded at 2500' away from just one wind plant. Some have described it as similar to a jet engine.
S.O.A.R. stands for Save Our Allegheny Ridges - a 501(c)3 organization devoted to preserving Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains, a valuable scenic and wildlife resource. Our mountains and ridge tops are at risk because elected officials in Washington and Harrisburg failed to realize that unregulated wind power development would alter Pennsylvania's mountaintops forever.
Save Our Allegheny Ridges (SOAR) is dedicated to the preservation and protection of the historic, natural, and scenic integrity of Pennsylvania’s Allegheny mountain ridges.
