Ask Apex. This never happens.
Between 2009 and 2017, the price of solar per watt declined by 75 percent while the price of wind declined by 50 percent. However, the places that deployed significant quantities of solar and wind saw their electricity prices rise dramatically. Here’s why.
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

“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.”

Hello, [NAME] here.
I like to start with my family and I Live, love, and work with others to better our Tiffin Ohio. I’m involved in many organizations that contribute success.
My wife and I purchased a few years ago a 15 acre lot in Eden twp. Exactly 4 miles straight south of our 5 acre mini farm/business/shop on 3119 E. Us.Rt 224. We liked the quite area away from the highway and the five acre woods in the back full of wildlife. Continue reading CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN A SENECA COUNTY RESIDENT AND REP. SEITZ (Great Read!)
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?

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..

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.
