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.
The story below appeared in the Tiffin-Advertiser Tribune newspaper. The bills introduced are very similar to the Reineke Referendum which was included with this summer’s legislative fight over HB 6. The current version, introduced yesterday, includes one provision lacking from the previous legislation, and that relates to set-backs. The bills introduced yesterday would increase the set-backs for wind Continue reading WOW! Please call and write a thank you to these legislators→
COLUMBUS — Ohio Rep. Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) and Ohio Sen. Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) Wednesday announced they are introducing companion bills that would grant local townships the ability to approve or reject wind farm projects via local referendum.
Recent Dispatch editorials say Ohio is “moving backward in energy production,” but how is this possible? Moving backward, is that not what renewable energy is? Hats off to the Ohio Power Siting Board and Public Utilities Commission of Ohio staff for looking at the facts rather than the usual “Let’s use renewables because they are green” mentality. Wind and solar are not the answer; instead they are more like “optional equipment” — power that’s nice to have but
It has been raised as an issue at more than one commissioners meeting by myself and others. It is an indisputable fact that with the number of turbines, their proximity to each other and their unprecedented height that our service from air ambulances will be Continue reading **Advertiser Tribune Letter to Editor**→
