The Shinbone Wind Project will use 8 to 10 turbines and has an estimated cost of US$31.6 million. Pioneer Green has already collected four years of wind energy data on the mountain. The developer is awaiting the completion of a Tennessee Valley Authority environmental study before taking the next step in the development process.
