Planning Commission recommends approval of CBF’s proposed wind turbines at PHP


The two wind turbines would be similar to those in place at Jockey’s Ridge State Park and Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, N.C.

Hopefully CBF and SmithGroup JJR will far exceed the standard in the wind turbine they use so as to minimize bird conflicts since PHP is a vital stop in the Atlantic Flyway.

One example of a wind turbine that does not use blades.

Previously at about a wind turbine with no blades.

We aren’t architects nor wind turbine experts at SavePHP. Nor do we currently have the resources to research wind power that strives to exceed 2012 specifications particularly in reducing conflicts with birds that find PHP vital in their travels. We trust CBF & SmithGroup JJR will embrace their commitment to the Living Building Challenge philosophies in everything they do and create a world class facility at PHP that exceeds any similar facility on earth today.

Living Building Challenge provides a framework for design, construction and the symbiotic relationship between people and all aspects of the built environment.
