Wind News – Victory in the Ohio House! Heads Up!… traitor Gayle Manning is still nobody’s friend!  😏Except To Big Wind 

Today we achieved a significant victory in the Ohio House of Representatives with the passage of HB 6 which will save clean energy generation at the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear plants and will give township voters the right of referendum to accept or reject OPSB certificates of approval for industrial wind projects over 20MW. Projects under 20 MW would be subject to local zoning. We have never been closer to regaining a voice in the future of our communities than we are today.

We owe much to the hard work of Rep. Nino Vitale, Chairman of the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee as well as Rep. Dick Stein who co-chaired the Energy Generation Subcommittee. Thanks, too, go to the support of the Speaker of the House Larry Householder. Of course, Rep. Bill Reineke’s amendment to allow local voters a chance to accept or reject a wind development was Continue reading Wind News – Victory in the Ohio House!

Rejecting Wind and Solar: Deep Green Resistance (Part II) – Master Resource

Solar panels and wind turbines aren’t made out of nothing. They are made out of metals, plastics, and chemicals. These products have been mined out of the ground, transported, processed, manufactured. Each stage leaves behind a trail of devastation: habitat destruction, water contamination, colonization, toxic waste, slave labor, greenhouse gas emissions, wars, and corporate profits. …

An Urgent Call to Action! / This is the closest we have ever been to gaining a voice in determining the future of our community

It was a busy week.  Sub HB 6 was introduced in the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee.  After hours and hours and hours of opposing testimony in previous weeks from wind, solar and environmental activists, the Committee threw in the towel on trying to make the bill acceptable to renewable advocates because,  no matter what was proposed, the renewable lobby refused to accept nuclear energy as “clean energy” – a carbon-free source that accounts for 90% of Ohio’s clean energy.  They preferred to force the shut down of the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear plants, put  over Continue reading An Urgent Call to Action! / This is the closest we have ever been to gaining a voice in determining the future of our community

Ohio’s wind setback rules are working well and should not be altered: LTE Cleveland Plain Dealer

Current law allows wind developers to build as close to neighbors as they wish after negotiating an agreement to do so. Pprojects under development in Ohio are proceeding successfully under such agreements, which are anything but “unreasonable.” Developers do not need shorter setbacks, writes Chris Aichholz of Bloomville in Seneca County in a letter to the editor.

To the editor: Seneca County Commissioner ignores wind turbines (Toledo Blade)

On April 24, Seneca County Commissioner Holly Stacy submitted written testimony to the House Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy Generation stating, “I … ask you to consider no new energy bill without the restoration of reasonable wind-siting regulations so that developers are no longer hindered by the current, unreasonable setbacks.”

~ SAWU pays tribute to the Burma-Shave signs of old ~

Look close as you drive on 224 past the cell tower near Camden Falls south of Tiffin. After spending an hour or more putting these up we can tell you for sure there are a LOT of cars driving past! And our biggest banner sign (4 feet x 8 feet) stands sentinel on the hill behind really grabbing attention! Drive carefully as you go past and think about how our message is getting out hundreds of times per hour in just this one spot. 🙂 – Chris Aichholz
