The company behind one of two wind projects planned for Seneca County is to host a trio of informational sessions about the proposed development in Attica beginning today.
The entity behind the wind project, sPower, plans to have representatives there to give a presentation and answer questions. The open houses are set for 5-7 p.m. today, 1-3 p.m. Wednesday and 5-7 p.m. Thursday at the Attica Fairgrounds Social Hall.
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
PLEASE VOTE NO in the Indiana Business Weekly poll on wind farms and military air space. (Can vote more than once.)
Please vote NO on this poll about allowing wind farms in military air space! An article in the Fort Wayne Business Weekly newspaper is about RES’s proposed wind farms, including the one we fought! Vote NO!

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 ??
Step into the lion’s den? No thanks! Aug 10, 2018
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!→
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→
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..
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. 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.
Our growing grassroots volunteer organization NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Are you concerned about the proposed industrial wind projects in YOUR neighborhood?
Do you want to take a more active role in helping us achieve our mission to preserve our rural settings, wildlife, property values, and overall quality of life in the beautiful scenic settings in which we live and work?
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.

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!
Before you believe what the sales teams try to sell, read this account:
My name is Brenda DeLong and I am a resident and property owner in Van Wert County. I live in the Blue Creek Wind project. I do not have any wind turbines on my property, but yet they affect my life by trespassing on my property. I built my home 13 years ago on my parent’s farmland thinking I could enjoy peace and quiet as a country home should be.
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.

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.
