Allegheny Highlands Alliance

The Allegheny Highlands Alliance (AHA) is a consortium of citizen/environment organizations with membership in five states along the Allegheny Front.  The AHA is in the process of discovering the facts about industrial wind, its potential to reduce green house gases, its economics and the impact of industrial wind energy project installations on the ecology and human health.

The purposes of AHA shall include but not be limited to the following:

(A) To advance public knowledge and understanding of the cultural, biological, environmental diversity, uniqueness, and sensitivity of the major ridgelines that comprise the Allegheny Highlands;

(B) To preserve and protect areas of particular scenic, geologic, biologic, historic, wilderness, and/or recreational importance in the Allegheny Highlands;

(C) To aid in the establishment of responsible policies to protect scientific, educational or aesthetic values;

(D) To conduct regional and resource studies as a basis for the wise use of the various resources of the Allegheny Highlands; to develop programs in energy conservation and wise production; and to serve local communities, the region,  the people of the Allegheny Highlands as an agency for popular enlightenment, for cultural improvement, and for scientific advancement;

(E) To advocate governmental policies for the conservation and wise management of energy and natural resources of the Allegheny Highlands.
