Oral hearings in relation to the Ghostpine Wind Farm near Trochu have been adjourned until Sept. 22.

Fortuna GP, the Canadian subsidiary of Florida Light & Power, has amended its application to erect 51 wind turbines and related facilities in the area.

The amendments opened the application to new objections, with the result that one area resident has raised new concerns about noise, vibration and other effects of having the turbines near her home.

Originally set for Aug. 30, the hearing has been rescheduled to the Trochu Community Centre at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 22.

Details concerning the project and application can be viewed in the active applications section on the Alberta Utilities Commission website at www.auc.ab.ca
