GRAYLAND - Tall as ancient sequoias, the four brand-new wind turbines above the cranberry bogs in Grayland loom over the landscape like invaders from space. But, as of about June 1, these "invaders" will begin providing help for the low-income residents of Pacific and Grays Harbor counties.

The one-of-a-kind, $5.5 million project has been in the works for more than eight years, and required huge amounts of work by many partners to complete financing, permitting and construction of the 1.5-megawatt GE turbines.
