“We need other sources of power,” Avila says. “We need to become environmentally safe and they need to reduce the pollution and so forth.”

The Nevada wind project will encompass around 3,500 acres along the Pah range just east of Warm Springs that could see 65 wind turbines spinning just 20 miles north of Reno.

According to project manager Tim Carlson, only about 90 acres will be used for the power producing facility that is one step closer to becoming a reality. Even if it is receiving mixed reviews.

Arnold Ares has lived in Warm Springs for nearly ten years. He says he has seen his share of change in the valley, but that doesn’t mean he’s opposed to the project that promises to power up to 45,000 homes.

“It doesn’t bother me,” Ares says. “I just wish they’d get all the nuts and bolts together and get both sides talking.”

A resident of more than 30 years, Bob Avila says he is all for Nevada going green.

“We need other sources of power,” Avila says. “We need to become environmentally safe and they need to reduce the pollution and so forth.”

Wind is a natural resource that we can take and utilize but there is still concern regarding the spinning turbines.

Once concern expressed is whether or not the turbines will block the National Weather Service’s radar and the microwave towers reception along the Pah Rah range.
