PIEDMONT, Oklahoma -

The town of Piedmont upped the ante Monday night in their fight to keep giant wind turbines outside Piedmont city limits.

Virginia-based Apex Wind Energy plans to build 400 or more wind turbines that would be 400-feet tall. The wind farm would span parts of Canadian and Kingfisher Counties.

Piedmont City Council Monday night voted to file an injunction against Apex, forbidding them from erecting any wind turbine within three miles of Piedmont City limits.

An Apex Monday night responded, "We are disappointed the city is choosing to pursue legal action prior to attempting a mutually agreeable resolution."
