Augusta Eyes Compatible Wind Project

In March 2012, Augusta County supervisors approved a lease of land at the county landfill in Stuart’s Draft to Apex Energy LLC of Charlottesville for construction of up to 20 to 30 wind turbines. The site has good access to I-81 and I-64, existing transmission lines, compatible land use and strong winds.
