What an absolute scam!! Did solar get an extension? NO!! Did offshore wind get an extension? NO!! Did battery storage get an extension? NO!! It is amazing at just how good the wind lobby is at extracting our tax dollars to prop up their worthless platform!
The end of 2019 was the expiration date for the federal PTC – Production Tax Credit for the wind industry. However, at the last minute on Monday (12/16) lobbyist where able to convince Representatives to extend the these tax breaks through 2020.
The local paper is running my letter to the editor￼. It is a reply to an article they ran last week about the Ohio bill to keep Davis Besse and Perry nuclear power plants open and operating￼ with a small fee tacked on to rate payers bills ($0.85 funded by reducing the Ohio renewable energy surcharge). Questions of plant safety and waste issues were brought up in the article.
Webmaster’s Note:GNU is providing this site as a service to the many wind warriors who would like to see anti wind merchandise. This website makes no money whatsoever from this and is not an endorsement, we post it as a convenience to our readers.
Fellow Wind Warriors let the uneducated know what they are in for. We know… Let others know. Additional Anti-Wind designs available.
Webmaster’s Note:These people are scared and why shouldn’t they be? Once you have removed the final say from corrupt politicians and greedy wind developers (who have nothing to lose) and give the final say back into the hands of the people (who have everything to lose)! Government and outside entities should never be allowed to bully communities based on pure stupidity and greed!
Business and environmental groups told state lawmakers Tuesday that subjecting proposed wind farms to votes of the people would likely kill the industry in Ohio.
On October 29-30, renewable energy industry stakeholders gathered in Austin, Texas for Greentech Media’s 2019 Power and Renewables Summit. At the start of the conference, audience members were asked to identify the biggest challenge facing renewable energy development over the next five years. The most popular answer — besides an economic slowdown — was the impending step-down in renewable energy tax credits.
In another month, the wind PTC will finally expire after twenty-seven years. Taxpayers will still be on the hook for billions more in PTCs through the next decade but the burden should not increase. In that time, the wind industry has grown significantly reaching over 100,000 MW and now mainstreamed into the US electricity market. Big Wind is no longer a nascent industry, but one that must stand on its own, whether it’s ready or not.
Webmaster’s Note: Wind Turbines may be producing 20% of Minnesota’s electricity…but not 24/7 – 365 days! Typical lying by omission by the “lamestream news media”! You DO like using electricity whenever you hit the switch…right!? Uh huh, I thought so…
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — What started with just a few wind turbines 20 years ago, now turns out nearly 20% of Minnesota’s electricity. But the towering blades haven’t come without questions and controversy in rural Minnesota.
By GEORGE H. BURNS III In the growing battle over wind turbines it would be wise to consider man-made events over the past 100 years that have caused significant, if not permanent scars to our natural environment. Some of these were unintentional and involved ignorance or negligence. Others were intentional, and sadly greed played a…
[Editor’s note: The doctrine of correlative rights limits use of a common groundwater source to a share in proportion to the landowner’s property above it. Many states apply the doctrine to oil and gas fields as well. Gene Thompson argues here that it should also be applied to the extraction of wind power.]
My name is Tanya Lamb. I am 50 years old. I have lived at my residence for 26 years, my husband for 37 years. We, at the very second you read this, live in the footprint of industrial wind. My husband loves to boast “I’ve planted every tree but two” on our once beautiful property. He started planning his future on our property in 1982, when he planted rows of evergreens that now surround three sides of our home. We met in 1993, married in 1997, built our dream home and moved in the spring of 2006. Fast forward to November 2019, we are now completely unsure we will be able to stay in our home…
A Utah renewable energy developer was struck by an unprecedented cyberattack that cut contact to a dozen wind and solar farms this spring, according to documents obtained by E&E News under the Freedom of Information Act.
