A Montana judge yesterday (March 4) kept a temporary injunction in place against San Diego Gas & Electric. The local utility wanted the judge to dismiss a case and permit it to withdraw its planned $265 million investment in Rim Rock wind farm near Cut Bank, according to the Associated Press.
The hearing went on all day yesterday. A Spanish company has built a 126-turbine project, but it is near nests of eagles and raptors. SDG&E says the project could kill, displace, or disturb eagles. The Spanish company argues that there are adequate safety measures in place to protect the birds.
