Wind News – Renewable Derangement Syndrome Descends on Ohio

Friends:

Attached below please find the HardinWind/RWE and MAREC comments filed with the OPSB on issues related to proposed rules for incident reporting.  Objections are raised to having third parties certify turbines are safe to restart after an incident.  More troubling, however, is HardinWInd’s argument that making previously certificated projects subject to new rules is unlawful.  HardinWind maintains that being subject to new rules constitutes imposing new conditions on certificate. They suggest that any rules be applied only to future certificates even if those rules address the safety of the community.  It appears that the developer is concerned about setting a precedent enabling a new rule to apply to an operating project.  If an issue arises that demonstrates the ineffectiveness of a previous condition placed on a certificate of approval, the developer wants to be assured they are immune from OPSB corrective action.  In such cases it would likely fall to communities to spend the money on lawyers to address a potentially harmful situation. Could this carry over to setbacks?
