WindfallELIZABETH CITY — The Pasquotank and Perquimans Commissioners voted four years ago to permit Iberdrola Energy, a Spanish developer of Wind Farms, to develop a project in the area known as the ‘desert’ — a section of land on the border between these two counties.

No opposing point of view was heard at the time, largely because none was available.

In the interim, however, sources of information have become available to learn the “other side of the story.”


To this end, a wind energy forum will be held in Elizabeth City, in Courtroom A of the local courthouse, on Tuesday, Feb. 10, at 6:30 p.m. The moderator will be retired physicist John Droz of Morehead City, who was formerly employed by GE Aerospace in Utica NY.

His presentation will include a video titled “ Windfall,“ an award-winning feature length movie, followed by a Q&A session with Mr. Droz. Come and learn the full story! Then decide for yourself if wind energy development is something that you want for your community.
