What Is The Cost Of Getting To A 100% “Renewable” Electric Grid?

If you are a politician in a blue area, the big thing these days is to make the pledge that you will put your state or city on the fast track to getting 100% of its electricity from the “renewables.”    Here in New York, trendy progressive Cynthia Nixon (challeng

Things get waaaay hot in New Castle, Indiana!

Webmaster’s Note: I especially like the writer’s comment about civil disobedience. I’m afraid we have  been in times past too nice when it comes to dealing with government & wind developers bullying tactics but I think that is starting to change. Seneca County anyone ??

The anti-wind crowd got a couple of big laughs Tuesday at the fact that not one single person stood up at the Henry County Planning Commission to speak in favor of the ordinance on the table about wind turbines.
Could you imagine if someone had, though? Continue reading Things get waaaay hot in New Castle, Indiana!

Ohio News – Black Fork’s Day in Court

This past week, the Ohio Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the appeal of the Black Fork Wind project in Crawford/Richland County.   Black Fork first surfaced 2009 and we give credit to the incredible persistence of the wind warriors who have never given up in their fight to save their community. 

This project has a long and tangled history including an application filed in June, 2014 to amend the project with bigger turbines. This amendment was filed only days before the “new” revised setbacks measuring from property lines became law.   We think the timing of that filing was purposeful and was intended to dodge the new setback requirements. Since that time, the developer has requested other amendments to their certificate,  including additional Continue reading Ohio News – Black Fork’s Day in Court

Kilowatt generator. Nowhere near the industrial size. Yeah you can’t hear that right?

Killing time in Sandusky looking at cars while kids at cedar point and came across this wind turbine next to Huron elementary school. Here are some videos. Even though its by a highway there was a high pitch squeeling going on that was constant that I could hear over the traffic. The sounds that were explained by the countless people in the videos that live near them I got to hear them and understand what they were talking about how it sounds like a jet constantly overhead..

To Holly Stacy and Shayne Thomas,

Over the past few months, you have been presented with the following verified information:

1. The total revenue coming into Seneca County from all sources associated with Republic Wind and Seneca Wind projects combined is less than 45 cents per day per person in the county. Continue reading LTE – Aren’t 143 wind turbines enough? (Way to go Jim!)

Seneca Anti-Wind Union / Commissioner Shayne Thomas Chooses Big Wind Over Four Local Townships Rights

Yesterday Commissioner Shayne Thomas single handily stopped four local Townships (Adams, Pleasant, Reed, and Scipio) from having their own legal counsel represent them in their opposition/intervention against the Republic Wind Project in front of the OPSB (Ohio Power Siting Board).

The attached pictures are screenshots from 2 separate letters that The Seneca County Prosecutor’s Office sent out to Township Officials and County Commissioners. One on July 24th and the other one yesterday, August 1st.

The “wind lobby” continues to crank out reports to persuade Ohioans and Ohio politicians to support their causes

The “wind lobby” continues to crank out reports to persuade Ohioans and Ohio politicians to support their causes.  More often than not the authors of the articles and ‘reports’ are supported by surrogates for the wind lobby. Upon closer examination, we see that many are left-wing activists pushing an ideological agenda that has little to do with our welfare or property rights.

In today’s issue, a spokesman for the Environmental Defense Fund again touts the Powering Ohio report issued by the Blue-Green Alliance and assorted Ohio manufacturers who could make money Continue reading The “wind lobby” continues to crank out reports to persuade Ohioans and Ohio politicians to support their causes

Yes, Solar And Wind Really Do Increase Electricity Prices — And For Inherently Physical Reasons

Renewables require the use of vastly more land, longer and less-utilized transmission lines, and large amounts of storage whether from lithium batteries, new dams, compressed air caverns.

Is Big Wind the New Big Tobacco?

— Curt Devlin, Guest Editor

Faced with growing evidence that industrial wind turbines (IWT’s) cause serious adverse health impacts, comparisons between the wind industry and the tobacco industry are getting more obvious all the time.  The Big Wind tactics of stalling, dismissing legitimate concerns, and outright denial of the link between turbines and health problems seem straight out of the Big Tobacco playbook.

Perhaps this pattern is standard behavior for dirty industries, especially when there is no easy way to acknowledge the harm they cause without damaging profits as well.  Despite these similarities, there are also fundamental differences between these two industries, the problems they create, and how they create them.  Anyone looking to hold Big Wind accountable for the havoc it creates should pay careful attention to these differences as well.  Forewarned is forearmed.

Greenwich! Read the plight of a Van Wert wind farm victim…

Webmaster’s Note: If you have ever driven Ohio SR 30 you cannot help but notice the invasion of hundreds of acres of farmland being consumed by these inefficient monstrosities. Believe it or not, they still want to add even more! That’s why it is so important to keep up our local Greenwich resistance now…it is naive of us to think that it would be any different here than in Van Wert! The wind industry is a greedy, cancerous disease that leaves whatever it touches in a wake of ruined health (both human and wildlife), property values, and rural community relationships while failing miserably as a legitimate source of uninterrupted power!

I do not have any wind turbines on my property, but yet they affect my life by trespassing on my property.

Just use a little common sense

10/08/16

I find myself in the difficult position of trying to explain common sense to a society and especially a government that rarely uses it any more. This time concerning wind energy and specifically a proposed wind farm near Greenwich.

The only positive information on wind energy come from the wind turbine companies themselves, the companies that maintain and repair wind turbines, or misguided government workers attempting to justify billions of dollars waste on an industry that simply does not work without government subsidies (by the way our tax dollars). I will give the sources I used at the end of this letter but, there is abundant information from unbiased sources that support this argument and no valid information from unbiased sources that support this argument and no valid information from unbiased sources to support wind turbines. Wind Energy is the least efficient way to create energy. Nuclear, natural gas, coal and even solar energy are far more efficient ways to create energy with fossil fuels Continue reading Letter to the Editor, Norwalk Reflector submitted by Dr. Donald T.

Wind power is, as we’re repeatedly told, ‘clean’, ‘green’ and ‘free’.

But, ever keen to rain on the wind industry’s parade, here’s a couple of pieces that point out one or more inconvenient truths.

As with the picture above, of a turbine self-immolating in Texas (see our post here) – the first concerns the habit these things have of bursting into a terrifying, toxic fireball.

The second details their common trait of giving up their 290 tonne hulks to gravity and tussling with terra firma.

GNU’S ATTORNEY FILES APPLICATION FOR REHEARING WITH OPSB AFTER THE REGULATORY BODY CONTINUES TO IGNORE BOTH THE LAW & CITIZENS!

June 21, 2016

Contact Information: Kevin Ledet, Chairperson

Greenwich Neighbors United

419-706-3997 / kaledet1@gmail.com

Yesterday, Greenwich Neighbors United (GNU) filed an application for rehearing to contest an Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) order issued about 30 days ago in Case No. 15-1921-EL-BGA. The OPSB order, issued without holding a hearing, authorized a wind farm developer to modify its Huron County development plan and add bigger and noisier wind turbine models to the plan previously approved by the OPSB. The wind farm developer’s request was filed after Ohio adopted new setback requirements which were not applied by the OPSB when it issued the order.

William J. Seitz and Kevon Martis: Trespass zoning is wind energy’s secret subsidy

February 19th, 2016

By William J. Seitz and Kevon Martis

Contributing Columnists for LimaOhio.com

There was a time when the environmental movement opposed noise pollution, fought industrial blight, and supported “little guys” whose quality of life was threatened by “corporate greed.”

But that was a long time ago, before wind energy.

The American Wind Energy Association and its allies at the Sierra Club and the Ohio Environmental Council continue to press the Ohio legislature to overturn recent wind energy siting guidelines that corrected a grievous fault in the earlier state guidelines.

The old regulations measured turbine setback distances and noise limits from the 500 foot to 600 foot tall wind turbines from the foundation or bedroom windows of neighboring homes. The new regulations established by the legislature measure setback distance and noise limits from neighboring property lines. Establishing siting regulations from property lines is standard practice for all other land use regulations. After all, homeowners are not confined to their homes. They and their kids like to play in the yard, enjoy outdoor picnics, or watch sunsets from patios and decks.

By measuring noise and setbacks for wind turbines from neighboring homes rather than property lines, the old law essentially awarded wind Continue reading William J. Seitz and Kevon Martis: Trespass zoning is wind energy’s secret subsidy
