MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia woman who says she's suffered physically and mentally from turbine vibration at a wind farm near Keyser is suing to have the operations shut down.
Anna Bell Saville says she's lost the ability to enjoy her home. She sued Pinnacle Wind Farm LLC and its parent company, California-based Edison Mission Group, Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Martinsburg.
Saville says the 23 turbines on Green Mountain create low-frequency pulsation noise and vibration that are irritating, annoying and sometimes severely debilitating.
She wants a judge to issue an injunction shutting down the turbines and is demanding reimbursement for lost wages and medical expenses.
Vice President Charlie Parnell said Edison Mission Group won't comment on litigation, except to say it strongly denies the allegations and will defend itself vigorously.
