These people love when industrial wind turbine development occurs in rural areas but when a project is proposed near them they hire powerful lawyers and lobbyist to get it shut down!! 🤔🤔
EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. — This affluent enclave on the East End of Long Island is steeped in eco-conscious pride, with strict water quality and land preservation rules and an abundance of electric cars on the roads.
So at first, many happily embraced a plan for an offshore wind farm that would help lead the way as New York State sets some of the most ambitious green energy goals in the country. Continue reading Oh the irony and hypocrisy.
A public hearing at Tiffin University’s Marion Center was hosted by the Ohio Power Siting Board Thursday afternoon to hear public testimony from area citizens
A large wind farm project that has been in development for close to a decade is now getting closer to being completed, or possibly denied. The APEX Clean Energy Wind Farm would bring up to 47 wind turbines to Seneca and Sandusky Counties. While APEX says that number could be as low as 35, many residents in the area are very concerned with the size of these wind turbines. “They’re 600 feet or more. In Republic Wind, they’ll be 602 feet high.
Those spinning blades on the horizon aren’t as green as you may think
One hundred years ago, the poet W.B. Yeats wrote a poem called the Second Coming where he says, “Things fall apart, the center cannot hold.” Some scholars think this line meant that the forces that should bring order are failing to do so. We have a sense of déjà vu with epic wind battles taking place everywhere we look as the wind lobby marches on to demolish local governments. In Ohio, we wait Continue reading Local Control Under Assault
Letter to the editor : Why is it that the setbacks from property lines and homes from industrial wind turbines continue to only increase in the surrounding states and Europe? The answer is safety.
This is why we need everyone to show up on Thursday for the OPSB Public Hearing for Republic Wind LLC. If we all stand together they can NOT shove these projects down our throats. Bring a friend, a neighbor, your family to OPPOSE the Republic Wind Project (APEX)! (click on pic to enlarge)
Factual information on foreign-funded industrial wind development in Champaign County, Ohio, free of multinational corporate spin.
After nearly thirteen years, EverPower and its successor, Innogy, has surrendered its certificates for the Champaign Wind and Buckeye Wind projects in Champaign County Ohio. A copy of the official relinquishment is attached. There will likely be a report in the Urbana Daily Citizen tomorrow and we will make it available to you.
Steadfast community resistance can be a long and often thankless Continue reading Wind News- Buckeye Wind Blows Away
The road to a world powered by renewable energy is littered with unintended consequences. Like a 40,000% surge in electricity prices.
Letter to the editor: It’s good to see public discussion of wind power. A recent opinion piece praised the elimination from House Bill 6 of a proposed referendum that would give residents affected by the installation of wind turbines a voice in the project.
President Donald Trump scoffed yet again at a source of electricity championed by his own energy secretary, saying wind power doesn’t work “all that well.”
The big hole pictures showing what goes in the ground. Thousands of truck loads of gravel, rebar and concrete. Taking the good earth and making it crappy earth.

Wind turbines, it turns out, unsurprisingly, have serious impacts on the environment that a whole lot of people are trying to ignore as they subsidize them.
Webmaster’s Note: Perhaps we could send some of our ” big wind supporting” politicians and developer’s sales people to aid these poor turbine owners with supplying the necessary wind they need?!? ?
A wind farm owner has encountered a problem: not enough wind.
