Too often the local residents have to catch flaws that the wind developer has in their plans via the OPSB’s public comment process only to not hear anything in response. There has to be some sort of mechanism in place that places an emphasis on public inputs and concerns.
Kevin is extremely knowledgeable about these projects and the OPSB’s process which is why we were glad he was at today’s meeting.

All area residents are urged to attend this meeting. This is your chance to be seen and heard!!
The Public Hearing is your chance to provide your thoughts, on the record, about the project. Area residents can provide input on anything they wish about the project, but we recommend the comments you make connect someway with the seven criteria the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) is eventually going to use to make it’s decision on the project. These seven criteria are set by state law. They are: Continue reading Public Hearing for the Emerson Creek Wind Project, covering parts of Erie and Huron counties

The construction of 15 to-20 foot deep concrete foundations to support all of the 328-foot-high towers with 2-MW turbines required 30,000 tons of cement. On average, each of these below-ground support systems used 60 truckloads of concrete (750 yd3)
This is a picture of a wind turbine base with rebar in place before concrete poured. This is on some of the best ground in the world in Kossouth County, IA. This base will never be removed.
The state board with power to approve local wind energy projects is reviewing its rules.
Much of the waste and futility of renewable electricity is masked by federal subsidies amounting to about 75% of the cost of the plants. However, it seems that congress is losing its appetite to subsidize useless energy.
