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.
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.
