    • NOT ONE turbine, but 144 turbines in just Phase 1 of project!
    • No decrease in Ohio’s low setback number of 1,125 ft. (plus one horizontal blade) with super-sized turbines
    • With high population density for rural area, no opportunity to isolate turbines
    • Heavy damage to roadways, due to weight and number of truckloads passing through
    • Years of road construction, traffic delays, and complete shutdowns due to constant repairs
    • Well water issues (poisoned or dry wells)
