    We were involved in the site work for the Armenia Mountain wind farm with 67 turbines. There are pictures on this site somewhere of the project. There is supposedly suppose to be another wind farm to be built in Potter county Pa.

    Both of the sites in PA. Sandy ridge and Chestnut flats have 2nd phases for next spring. Sandy ridge site is actually Ice Mountain. They were in a hurry to finish up these first phases before the holidays.
    These are Gamesa 2.5 turbines. The way it's getting now with the turbine sites being so small it really takes some planning to get components staged for erection.

    Armenia Mountain was suppose to have a second phase with an additional 60 turbines but the amount of site work needed didn't make it cost efficient. Are those AES projects?
