E.ON Wind farm is trespass zoning

I am for the responsible and safe placement of renewable energy that doesn’t affect my safety or property rights. I have the privilege of living out in the country for the peace and quiet. Has anyone ever heard someone say, “I will sell my property to go and live in the middle of a wind farm”? When you live in a rural community as I do, you expect some form of agricultural annoyances. Do you expect industrial annoyances from wind-power . . . Complete story »

Why do wind companies place people beneath turbines?

I once attended a Republican club meeting to ask why our county was pursuing Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs). I questioned a commissioner about impacts of 500′ turbines the height of the tallest skyscraper in downtown Indianapolis. He uttered “sound bites” often heard, “Have you ever stood under a wind turbine?” “They don’t make noise.” “I stood a half hour under one!” I repair aircraft for a living that are more complicated than wind turbines operating across the US. Wind companies, . . . Complete story »

Beyond wind and solar

I can’t believe anyone actually thinks New Mexico can decarbonize by 2050. That is exactly what the state is trying to do with their Clean Energy Transition Act (CETA) which plans to replace fossil fuels for generating electricity with non-fuel intermittent based wind and solar energy assisted by natural gas (oops, that’s stored carbon). New Mexico regulators are just now charting the CETA requirements into two parallel paths, one to determine how to finance and implement the decommissioning of the . . . Complete story »

No benefit to Guilford in planned wind project

Re: The Daily Star front-page story on July 18, “Guilford board hears blowback vs. wind farm.” It is a real shame that residents of Guilford have to learn about this wind farm project through the newspaper. It looks to me a lot of sneaky deals were made long before information was made public. There are some who stand to profit from this project if it goes through. Shamefully, through their greed they will sell out the beautiful town of Guilford. . . . Complete story »

Consumers deserve full story on wind turbines

I have to chuckle every time I read a story about “carbon-free” wind turbines. These reports do a disservice to readers because they do not fully explain what makes these turbines run (hint: it is something we produce a lot of here in New Mexico) or that they are manufactured. These stories also do not explain how much of our power comes from wind (hint: it is not a huge amount) and, very often, they do not explain the strides . . . Complete story »

Signing wind turbine setback waivers not a good idea

Many of the over 125 planned wind turbine locations in the projects proposed for our area are too close to neighbors to be legal. To remedy the situation the wind companies are trying to get those neighbors to sign “setback waivers” aka “good neighbor agreements” to allow the turbines to be placed closer to them than the law allows. If you are considering signing such an agreement be sure you understand what you are agreeing to. Wind turbines are 600 . . . Complete story »

Impact of wind turbines not exaggerated

Dear Director Pauley, Your migratory bird hunting survey does not apply to my area in DeKalb County. The answer to each question suggests there is uniform opportunity to hunt across this state. That is not the case when one’s farm is partially surrounded by Osborn Wind Energy LLC wind turbines. We have two ponds that used to attract geese and ducks, and I prefer to hunt on our farm. We are the fourth generation family to actively farm this ground . . . Complete story »

Wind farm affected local wildlife

I would like to share observations about wildlife attracted to our farm. We have two ponds that used to attract geese and ducks, and I prefer to hunt on our farm. We are the fourth generation family to actively farm this ground since 1868. We now live next to a cluster of wind turbines operated as Osborn Wind Energy LLC. The migratory birds have changed their flight path over this area. They avoid it. We used to have hundreds of . . . Complete story »

Wind-farming daydream becomes a nightmare (letters)

Environment protection groups and Greens politicians have no interest in the environment or biodiversity preservation (“The ill winds of hypocrisy”, 26/7). Their encouragement of wind farms in western Victoria has led to the killing of the peregrine falcon, other raptors, brolgas and bats, as well as the destruction of local wetlands. To discourage birds from the area farmers are being encouraged to clear wetlands and vegetation before wind farms are constructed. Green groups have condoned this despite locat protestations.

Pushback against wind turbines in Henry County

Henry County (home of my treasured family farm) has fervently battled against an industrial wind turbine invasion for the last 3.5 years. The Henry County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Tuesday, July 23, 5 p.m., Bundy Auditorium. Calpine is seeking final approval on permits to build 38 turbines, 499’-ht., covering six townships. The people do not want wind. Henry County leaders are determined to welcome it. Promises of wind income are very seductive to financially struggling counties. Same . . . Complete story »
