Column: Osage Nation threatens legal action over wind farm





The Osage Nation of Oklahoma is threatening legal action against a proposed wind farm:
Tom Roche’s NTR appears set to offload a troublesome wind farm project in Oklahoma.

Its US subsidiary, Wind Capital, has applied for federal approval to sell a proposed 150MW wind farm that was to have been developed on land occupied by the Osage nation, a Native American tribe.

Wind Capital had got itself into a bit of a bind with the Osage people, whose assistant principal chief recently threatened legal action over the project. Although, you’d have to question the wisdom of having a barney with any man called Scott Bighorse.
