Press Release #140103 Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (NC) January 13, 2014 DOD, Invenergy reach agreement on Pantego Wind Energy ProjectSEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. -- The Department of Defense and Invenergy Wind Development LLC reached an agreement to mitigate impacts of the Pantego Wind Energy Project on military training while pursuing renewable energy development.
"With this agreement, a careful balance was struck to capitalize on the potential of renewable energy in eastern North Carolina, while allowing the 4th Fighter Wing to continue its F-15E, low-level flying mission," said Col. Jeannie Leavitt, 4th FW commander. "All F-15E formal aircrew training is conducted at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and operating areas such as the Dare County Bombing Range are a valuable commodity critical to military readiness. This agreement is paving the way for renewable wind energy development in this region."
As a result, wind turbines will be placed no closer than four nautical miles from the centerline of a major military flying training route in eastern North Carolina used extensively by Seymour Johnson AFB F-15Es and Navy and Marine Corps aircraft for low-level flight training and access to the Dare County Bombing Range.
