Officials: Wind Turbine Plan Would Thwart OLF

Camden and Currituck counties are working to bring wind turbines to an area of land known as "Hale's Lake," to help generate tax dollars for the counties, while preventing the U.S. Department of Defense from building an outlying landing field there.

Camden County commission chair Phil Faison says the county has been fighting the proposed OLF for three years. He says a Spanish wind turbine company is interested in putting 90 wind turbines on George Woods Farms instead, which would each bring in about $30,000 of taxable income to the county each year.
