A clean energy company wants to invest $100 million to build a solar farm north of Bellevue.
BELLEVUE — A packed room gave the Erie County commissioners a standing ovation Tuesday when they voted to deny the payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) for a wind farm project.
The General Assembly gets back to work this week and the days are growing shorter until adjournment. The Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee will meet on Tuesday and will hold the fifth hearing on SB 346 to repeal HB 6 and reinstate renewable and efficiency mandates. In an interview with the Associated Press, Rep. Bill Seitz voiced his opposition to a repeal saying “There is no representative and no senator who voted yes on House Bill 6, who lost their reelection bid,” Seitz said in an interview with The Associated Press. “But many, several, at least, who voted no, lost. So what does that tell you?” Seitz vowed to vote against any repeal bill brought to the House for a floor vote during the next four weeks of the lame duck session.”
The AP report went on to say, ”The concern for Republicans like Seitz, Cupp and committee chairman Jim Hoops is that repealing the bill outright would have unintended consequences and they need more time to understand the complex legislation.” Continue reading Wind News – Solar Eclipse of Rural Ohio
This was a sad week for solar and wind warriors who have fought to have our voices heard at the Ohio Power Siting Board. We lost a friend and advocate when PUCO Chairman Sam Randazzo submitted his resignation to Governor DeWine so that he might not become a distraction to the important work of serving the public interest and Ohio’s energy policies.

Reason 1. They cost too much. When you look at the final installed operational cost of a wind farm that will replace a standard coal fired power station, the cost is massive. When we are told that wind is now as cheap as coal, they are only
Webmaster’s Note: Talk about silver linings!?
Even as businesses around the world shut down this spring, executives at EDF Renewables were hopeful they would finish installing 99 wind turbines in southern Nebraska before a year-end deadline. Then, in early April, the pandemic dealt a big blow to the company.

The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has formally adopted an oral motion – that was unanimously approved – which removes a requirement that Icebreaker Windpower Inc. must completely feather wind turbines, stopping them from rotating, during nighttime hours from March 1 through Nov. 1. The board order on rehearing grants in part, and denies, in […]
It’s still unclear what, if anything, the Ohio General Assembly will do about HB6 before the legislative session ends.

It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that we’re a heartbeat away from an all wind and sun powered future. But that’s the premise advanced by wind and sun worshippers and the rent …
Energy Special – 9/28/20
Are wind, solar, and batteries the magical solutions to all our energy needs? Or do they come with too high a price? Mark Mills, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, analyzes the true cost — both economic and environmental — of so-called green energy.
