Legal Interventions

The proposed project area and scope were selected without public input. The area is not suitable for  turbine placement and we believe contravenes a number of federal and state, environmental, and economic statutes

 

Save LBI has proposed sensible alternative locations for wind energy development, such as in the farther out, Hudson  South area, to no avail. Therefore the only recourse is to pursue this project’s termination in court.

See our current status on the lawsuits we're following. And please consider donating more so that we can continue to protect our environment and economy from damages caused by these massive multi-national energy companies and governmental agencies.
