Divisions in community result of ‘outsiders’ like RES

On February 28, 2018 there was a public forum written by Keith den Hollander, national field director, Christian Coalition. I quote his public forum: “Unfortunately, there are some outsiders who have come in and used misinformation or political motivations to try and stop wind energy here in Indiana. These agendas divide communities and are designed to pit one neighbor against another to accomplish their ends.” Keith I would like to remind you and everyone else reading this public forum that . . .

County divided on wind farms

Montgomery County is a divided community because of the wind turbine issue. Forty-two counties in Indiana are against wind turbines in their county; not wanting any built there, or stopping expansion of existing wind farms after being exposed to and living with all the real problems. They want nothing to do with these machines. There are people living in our county who have jobs and work in other counties that have wind farms but do not want to live anywhere . . .

Ordinance lacks proper protections

The wind industry ruined it for everyone by encouraging towers near human populations. Unfortunately, the disparaging attitude toward “country people” has been planted by the wind industry to make it easier for public conscience to ruin rural properties, lives and schools. Unfortunately, for the wind industry in this county, the country people are also the farmers feeding America, and even the commissioners themselves. “Town people” like those in the country are the teachers who educate the rural kids, and own . . .

Wind farm amendment introduced; Commissioners propose reducing noise limit, increasing property setbacks

Montgomery County Commissioners presented their highly anticipated amendment to the county’s ordinance governing wind turbines on Wednesday. Two areas of concern that led to the proposed change are noise levels and property line setbacks. A major change to the ordinance involves the noise limit emitting from a wind turbine from 60 decibels to 34 decibels. The second change would increase the required setback for property lines from 1,300 feet to 1,500 feet. The noise decibel level will be measured at . . . Complete story »

Wind turbine talk gets heated at meeting; Opponents make frustrations known

Calls from opponents of a proposed wind turbine project overlapped each other and filled the Cass County Commissioners Hearing Room on Tuesday as leaders ended the meeting. Many of the meeting’s attendees oppose a plan to bring turbines to Adams, Bethlehem, Boone and Harrison townships in northern Cass County. Renewable Energy Systems Americas, or RES, is the company behind the plan and also wants to erect turbines in northern Miami County. Officials and residents who support the project say it . . .

Zoning, water come up at wind meeting; About 230 attend event organized by project opponents

Regulations in Cass County fall short of ones an advocate of wind turbine zoning says are necessary for health, safety and welfare. Kevon Martis, former vice chairman of the Riga Township Planning Commission in southeastern Michigan’s Lenawee County, addressed a crowd of about 230 in the Community Center at the Cass County Fairgrounds Saturday night. The Cass County Property Rights Group, which opposes a wind turbine project proposed for northern Cass and Miami counties, organized the meeting, which also drew . . . Complete story »

Federal commission denies wind farm developer’s request

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has denied a request from the developer behind wind turbines proposed for Cass and Miami counties that would have allowed it to easily change where it connects with an electric transmission grid. The Feb. 9 FERC order addresses Harvest Wind Energy LLC’s petition for a waiver of PJM Interconnection LLC’s Open Access Transmission Tariff. Harvest Wind Energy is the turbine project proposed by Renewable Energy Systems Americas, or RES, in northern Cass and Miami counties . . . Complete story »

Miami Co. faces lawsuit over wind farm ordinance

PERU – A couple living in the area of a proposed wind-farm project in northern Miami County says the county’s wind-energy ordinance is unconstitutional and is asking a judge to strike down parts of the statute. Charles and Donna Smith filed a lawsuit last month against the Miami County Board of Commissioners claiming the wind ordinance violates both the U.S. and Indiana constitutions by restricting property rights. The county wind-farm statute requires a minimum setback of 1,000 feet from residential . . . Complete story »

Citizens deserve voice on turbines

I feel that there are a lot of similarities between the turbine project and what Logansport faced back in 2013. When Logansport CARE (Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy/Logansport Power) became vocal about the dangers of the Pyrolyzer plant, I stood by and watched it play out. I felt that it would not have an effect on me. I was mistaken. Everything that happens in our town and county affects us all. The carcinogens from the incinerator would have been emitted . . .

FERC orders Indiana wind project to the back of the queue

FERC ruled Friday that the developer of a proposed 1,500-MW Indiana wind farm must go to the end of the interconnection queue to move its point of interconnection (POI) 2.9 miles. The commission’s Feb. 9 order rejected Harvest Wind’s request for a waiver allowing it to change the POI without triggering the “material modification” language under PJM’s Tariff. FERC sided with PJM in requiring a new queue application and facilities study (ER18-615). Colorado-based Renewable Energy Systems Americas acquired the Harvest . . . Complete story »
