The developers of a proposed wind farm in Clifton say someone vandalized the property, causing about $30,000 in damage.
Developer Paul Fuller says in a recent trip to Pisgah Mountain, he discovered someone released the cables holding wind gauge equipment in place.
He and his partners want to build a five-turbine farm on the top of the mountain.
The $25 million project has been a controversial one for the community with a number of town votes and court hearings on the plan.
In July voters approved a series of changes to allow the project to move forward.
The state Supreme Court is now reviewing the plan.
