Wind News Special Report – Rep. William Seitz calls for SB 238 to be Abandoned

Friends:

Today Rep. Seitz wrote to the entire General Assembly, the Governor’s Office, the PUCO, the press and the Ohio Chamber of Commerce calling for no further legislative consideration of SB 238 that would reduce setbacks for industrial wind turbines. In his email, Seitz cites the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory findings in the Larwood Report.  We encourage our readers to share Rep. Seitz’s message with the local community, local elected officials and local media. Continue reading Wind News Special Report – Rep. William Seitz calls for SB 238 to be Abandoned

  Wind Energy’s Absurd

A brilliant letter regarding the absurdity of wind.

If you choose to live in a rural location you expect to live with rural activities, sounds and smells.

You never signed up for industrialisation on any scale let alone Big Wind.

We have to fight back or they will just keep hitting us and taking away our rights, our hopes and our dreams.

The Dangers of Green Technology-Forcing

  Citizens for Clear Skies

“Before we start, here is a quick clarification on what I mean by technology-forcing and technology-neutral policies. Technology-forcing promotes certain technologies over others through mechanisms like subsidies, tax-breaks, mandates, portfolio standards, low-interest financing, accelerated depreciation, guaranteed prices, etc. Technology-neutral policies target the real issue and alter the competitive landscape in favor of any technology that can address this issue. Examples include a carbon tax to combat climate change, fuel taxes to limit congestion and oil dependence, and vehicle/plant emissions taxes to improve air quality.”

Wind News – NREL Deals Dolan Setbacks A Setback?

Friends, 

This issue will deal primarily with Ohio communities, wind warriors and elected officials who have been very active in recent weeks.  As the primaries are only several weeks away, the heat is definitely rising.  

Attached you will find the most recent mailer attacking Rep. Bill Seitz.  Big Wind and the Democrats have fired another shot accusing Seitz of trying to steal the property rights of farmers who want to lease land for turbines.  This effort is trying to flip the conservative principles upon which property rights are founded.  The attackers are trying to get Republican lawmakers, Commissioners and township trustees to say the farmers have an absolute right to put turbines wherever they want – as if wind development was really a crop immune from zoning.  They are vicious and so blinded by the Continue reading Wind News – NREL Deals Dolan Setbacks A Setback?

Is Wind Energy a Good Idea?

You can produce electricity with a wind turbine, but is it good policy to do so? The reality is that wind energy exists solely because of government subsidies. (Don’t take my word for it, just ask Warren Buffett: ‘We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.’) Given that wind energy

Commissioners hear opposition to wind farm plan

April 18, 2018 |

A half-dozen Seneca County residents expressed opposition Tuesday to plans for a wind farm to cover some 35,000 acres in Seneca and Sandusky counties.

The residents spoke to Seneca County Board of Commissioners Tuesday morning about Republic Wind Farm, which would consist of up to 58 wind turbines with a total generating capacity of up to 200 megawatts, according to documents filed with the state. Legislation pending at the Ohio Statehouse would change property line setback requirements for the nearly 600-foot-tall wind mills, and property tax breaks that are part of an alternative energy zone enacted by previous commissioners, would make the wind project feasible.

Most objections focused on disruption of the rural landscape and Continue reading News from our Seneca County Neighbors..

Blue Creek is in default on a bankruptcy agreement with First Energy

Citizens for Clear Skies
The hits keep coming. Blue Creek is in default on a bankruptcy agreement with First Energy. And notice the escalating prices in their power purchasing agreement. So much for that false narrative of how wind is competitive. Even highly subsidized it’s not competitive and costs escalate. That’s bad for consumers. There’s a fact check for you too.

Citizens for Clear Skies shared Ron Romine’s post –  “That’s the kind of bastards these Turbine companies are that we’re dealing with.”

Professor Mariana does a great job breaking things down so you understand. It’s in Denmark so listen past the introduction. She presents in English. Absolutely incredible! Start listening at 47 minutes in and listen what happened to the 10 year old boy living in the home they tested. These findings are incredible! They took the turbines down because the supreme court of Portugal made them but since it was for only those 4 they installed 4 different ones. That’s the kind of bastards these Turbine companies are that we’re dealing with.
