The high cost of being a ‘Good Neighbor’ to Big Wind – LTE

 

October 22, 2018

As representatives from “Big Wind” companies in our area go door to door, consider the following before signing a lease on the hood of your car.

• “Good Neighbor Agreement” is a wind lease which allows the developer to place the turbines closer to occupied structures and property lines than current Ohio regulation allows. Typically, the GNA will pay a leaseholder $500 per year after the project is operational. The lease is permanent, whether the turbines are installed or not.

Letters to the Editor – Seneca

Over 500 Concerned Citizens Attend Local Public Meeting

October 22, 2018

I would like to thank each and every person who attended Seneca Anti-Wind Union’s public informational meeting that was held on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Camden Falls. We had a phenomenal turnout and the event was a HUGE success! People were able to look at all the maps, review information regarding all of the negative impacts that will come with these projects, listen to speeches on the very contentious issue, be present for a very informative presentation, and people were able to talk one-on-one with SAWU members to ask any question that people may have had. Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible, thank you to all the elected officials, candidates for office and finally thank you to all the local businessmen and businesswomen who were all in attendance. It truly is amazing what we can accomplish when our community comes together! I think a loud and clear message was sent to the wind turbine companies, the OPSB (Ohio Power Siting Board), and many elected officials across the state that the majority in Seneca County residents do NOT want these industrial scale wind turbine projects to happen in Seneca County!

With a very open mind, we went to the meeting about wind farms on October 16, at Camden Falls. We wanted to find out the whole truth of their affect on all the lives in Seneca county. We’ve put a sign in our yard, and are writing this letter in hopes that many more people in the county will get the true facts, and make a decision based on the whole truth, not half truths.

Sea of green at Farmersville wind turbine public hearing

Webmaster’s Note: This story is taking place in New York state. It is a scenario that is repeating itself all over the U.S. & worldwide. People everywhere have had enough of the misrepresentations & outright lies of the wind cartel. Wind does not, nor will it ever, hold up against genuine scrutiny of those who really want to know the truth!

FARMERSVILLE — There was a sea of green T-shirts on both sides at Thursday’s public hearing on the proposed new Farmersville Wind Turbine law.

Pointless Part-Time Power: Germany’s Readily Available Wind Power Capacity Less Than 1% of Total Installed Capacity

Webmaster’s Note: So this is worth tearing communities apart, perpetrate en masse killings of birds & bats, drive people from their homes, plunge property rights & values into the toilet…!? To all you  “sell out” politicians who abandoned their constituents in favor of wind lobbyist & developers…you chose badly! Read this story! Eventually this will become evident to all…even to you!

 

When it comes to actually delivering wind power, the real and the ideal are a gulf apart. In Australia, the average capacity factor (the ratio between actual output and nominal capacity) is …

Letter: Get Involved with wind turbines

As residents of Eden Township, we oppose the two proposed wind turbine projects for Seneca County. We are not opposed to renewable energy but we are opposed to an INDUSTRIAL wind project being placed in the RESIDENTIAL area in which we live. Concerned citizens, like ourselves are not motivated by money or being paid by the fossil fuel industry, we are fighting to protect our homes from becoming ground zero in an INDUSTRIAL wind project.

Seneca Anti-Wind Union draws more than 500 for presentation in Tiffin

The Camden Falls Conference Center was standing room only on Tuesday night, as several hundred people gathered to say no to wind turbines. The Seneca Anti-Wind Union brought in State Representative Bill Reineke and Seneca County Commissioner Mike Kerschner to speak at their event. The group’s biggest concerns include dropping property values and rights, and environmental concerns like the killing of birds.

Reflector poll shows Morgan and Tkach still favored in local election races

Webmaster’s Note: In an informal meeting with GNU members a couple weeks back, Mr. Morgan made it known that wind developers need to pay their fair share of taxes. He also realizes the importance of rural communities being heard when it comes to development and that cities alone should not control what is happening in the county’s rural areas.

Bob Morgan – Independent candidate for Huron Co. Commissioner

Hintz, James each receive about a quarter of the vote in three-way race for Huron County commissioner.

Must Read! Wide-scale US wind power could cause significant warming

First, an introduction by John Droz, jr concerning the following article as reported in the MIT Technology Review .

Yesterday a major study was released, that concluded that wind turbines cause more atmospheric warming than using coal does!

There have been other studies that have come to this conclusion (e.g. here), but maybe since this came from Harvard, more people will pay attention to it…

This is a good time to step back and look at the current Wind Energy Scorecard. Studies from independent experts (see prior Newsletters) have concluded the following:

1 – Global Warming: Wind energy results in more warming than Coal does. Continue reading Must Read! Wide-scale US wind power could cause significant warming
