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.
