    Source:  North Texas Wind Resistance | Information, Law, Texas

    1 – What other company names and/or entities does FPL Energy (Lessor) operate under?

    2 – Does Lessor provide indemnification for individual land owners (Lessee) from claims of damages to neighboring property owners? If so, to what extent?

    3 – Will Lessor include an iron-clad non-assignment clause in the lease agreement to provide assurance to the Lessee that they will be dealing with the same company throughout the term of the lease? If not, are there provisions to uphold the original terms of the lease?

    4 – Exactly how much money is guaranteed to the Lessee per year and for how long? What are the renewal provisions on the lease?

    5 ““ How many power lines/poles will be constructed on Lessee’s property to accommodate the turbines?

    6 ““ How many acres will be needed for maintenance roads on Lessee’s property? Will Lessor construct and maintain roads that will not cause run-off or erosion?

    7 ““ Will Lessor consider erosion issues when choosing tower sites? What assurances does the Lessee have the construction will not cause erosion on their property?

    8 ““ Will the Lessor provide an ironclad and non-assignable contract to repair any towers, turbines or blades that become damaged?

    9 – Will Lessor, or any other entity, provide an iron-clad and non-assignable contract to disassemble and remove the turbines when one becomes damaged beyond repair, obsolete, or simply non-profitable, regardless of when that occurs? If not, why not?

    10 – Why does Lessor require the signing of confidentiality agreements if they are so sure that wind turbines industrial zones are a good thing for a community?

    11 – Why does Lessor not hold any public hearings to inform the entire community of their intentions until individual leases are already signed with property owners?

    12 – How much electricity does one wind turbine actually make in a year in an area with category 3 wind? How many homes will 100 wind turbines actually power based on actual usage numbers? Please provide charts showing wind power availability during peak usage hours for each month for areas with same wind category and temperatures.

    13 – What are “Production Tax Credits” and how do they benefit the energy company?

    14 – What other types of “incentives” are available to the energy company?

    15 – Assuming that PTC’s, and other “incentives” are not available from the government, are wind farms a good financial investment? If so, how?

    16 ““ Why would an energy company want to build an industrial wind farm in this area?
