    Realities and Legalities – Other Perspectives on Industrial Wind Energy  

    Source:  Whitley County Concerned Citizens | Health, Illinois, Law, Noise, Presentations, Property values

    Dave & Stephanie Hulthen and their four children live in the home pictured below. It was their dream farmhouse in rural Dekalb County, Illinois, until the wind turbines moved in next door. Today the Hulthen family lives surrounded by thirteen 40-story turbines within one mile of their house, the two closest a mere 1400 feet away. When the realities of living with their new neighbors became clear, they launched their blog, Our Life with Dekalb Turbines, to record and share their experiences.

    Dave & Stephanie will be featured speakers at REALITIES AND LEGALITIES – Other Perspectives on Industrial Wind Energy. They will join us to give their firsthand description of what it’s like to live in the middle of an industrial wind installation, and how they and their children cope with noise, shadow flicker, and other ordeals.

    Also featured at REALITIES AND LEGALITIES will be Professor Roger McEowen, Professor in Agricultural Law, and Director of the Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation, Iowa State University. With degrees in both Law and Economics, Professor McEowen will share his insights into the economic ramifications of wind-generated electricity, address the topic of the taxpayer subsidies that support the wind energy industry, and detail the legal and tax issues surrounding wind energy ordinances and landowner agreements. Professor McEowen, respected scholar and author, conducts seminars around the country for accountants, lawyers and agribusiness professionals to update their knowledge of tax, business and legal matters related to agriculture and farm business activities.

    REALITIES AND LEGALITIES will be presented at 6 pm, Tuesday, June 21st at Indian Springs Middle School on St Rd 9, just south of Columbia City.
