Sheppard Air Force Base and the military community is celebrating a win this week as a wind farm company decides to not build near the base. The base announced that Innergex, a renewable energy company, was considering building wind farms near Byers and Bluegrove. After information campaigns from the base and Sheppard Military Affairs Committee (SMAC) about how the developments would negatively impact Sheppard’s training routes, the company removing themselves from the permitting process – meaning their interest in the . . .

Niagara County aids Somerset with legal fees in wind power fight

The Town of Somerset has incurred more than $260,000 in legal fees since 2015 in fighting a proposed wind power project, and the Niagara County Legislature voted Tuesday to help. The county will give Somerset $15,000 to help with the cost of trying to stop the Lighthouse Wind project, which would bring as many as 70 turbines, each up to 620 feet tall, to Somerset and neighboring Yates. “It’s been a substantial burden on the town,” Supervisor Daniel M. Engert . . . Complete story »

Madison County wind regulations still up in the air

Members of the Madison County Joint Planning Commission have been given some homework – Study the county’s proposed wind energy regulations and visit a wind farm. While it appeared Thursday evening that many members already had done so, commissioners were reminded that they probably could never read and review all of the information available pertinent to the proposed regulations. On April 3, the Madison County commissioners voted to establish a six-month moratorium on accepting wind farm applications to allow time to . . . Complete story »

Wind energy developments likely to bring housing challenge for small Wyoming towns

With just less than 250 people, Rock River in Carbon County is not a town with a host of amenities. A picturesque bend in the road propels travelers back up to highway speed before they’ve got a good look around. But the tiny town could become the stomping ground to construction workers as a host of new wind developments come on line soon. Federal subsidies for wind are reaching a sunset in a few years and so a boom of . . . Complete story »

The turbines of Madison County

Currently, a small number of our leaders and elected officials are supporting the development of wind farms in our county. Comparatively, such support seems to ignore the protests of well over 1,000 residents standing in opposition. This particular issue would not be the first important decision to be pressed without some type of reasonably accurate measure of public sentiment. Some might say a good leader simply could listen to the people and then act on their behalf. However, asking the . . . Complete story »

Why is Apex still here?

July 2018 marks the three-and-a-half-year anniversary of the formation of Save Ontario Shores, Inc., in opposition to Apex’s Lighthouse Wind project.

Since SOS was formed, the opposition to Apex’s Lighthouse Wind project has continued to grow. Opposition is not just from local people who would . . . Complete story »

Planned Tug Hill wind farm drawing opposition, questions

SYRACUSE – A proposed wind farm on 20,000 acres of private land in Oswego and Jefferson counties is facing opposition and questions.

Wind turbines take a break as heatwave is about to hit Britain

Thousands of wind turbines from Germany to the U.K. are set to grind to a halt next week, cutting electricity supplies at the same time as the next wave of hot weather arrives. As the warmest second quarter in 30 years draws to a close, next-month power prices in Europe’s biggest economy are already trading at their highest for this time of year since 2011. The drop in wind, coupled with forecasts for hotter-than-normal weather across Northwest Europe, could give . . . Complete story »
