Many show up for wind farm moratorium bill in N.H.
Several hundred people showed up at the State House on Tuesday for a hearing on it. Many testified the projects would reduce property values. They said new wind farms need to be stopped until a comprehensive energy plan is established.
But some opposed to a moratorium said it would hurt their livelihood.
Tyler Eaton, who represents union workers, told WMUR that the bill would stop investment in the state and kill jobs.
An attorney for Trans Canada, which owns local hydro dams, said it goes against a 2007 law saying the state should move toward renewable forms of energy to improve air quality and public health and mitigate climate change.
