    Encouragement and hope

    FYI and to encourage and give hope to other communities confronted with a seemingly fruitless battle against wind farms, I offer you an overview of our fight and so far, victory and our new challenge. Friends of the Grande Ronde Valley (FGRV) gathered together and began its fight against the 161 wind turbines of the proposed Antelope Ridge Wind Farm sometime in late 2009. With the strong leadership of Dennis and Pamela Wilkerson FGRV was able to fully utilize and . . .

    800-pound gorilla

    I got back from Iraq in 2007 with two turbines within 1,000′ across the road on a neighbor’s property. Then the noise started, followed by shadow flicker when fall rolled around. I contacted my Jackson County Minnesota planning & zoning director who said everything was done to state specifications. He gave me the contact information to the company that was managing the wind turbines. That started a long battle with are they noisy, how noisy are they, there is no . . .

    Paradise Destroyed: The Destruction of Rural Living by the Wind Energy Scam

    Paradise Destroyed: The Destruction of Rural Living by the Wind Energy Scam by Gregg Hubner, assisted by Jamin Hübner Preview and Buy at Amazon. Wind energy. It’s free. It’s green. It’s healthy. It’s sustainable. And it’s lucrative for property-owners. If only this popular narrative were true. In Paradise Destroyed, Gregg Hubner fully exposes wind energy development for what it really is: a taxpayer scam. And not only is it a scam, but wind farms are a destructive force of 21st-century . . .

    Things Commonly Found in a Wind Contract

    These items will not be in every company’s contract, but they are commonly found in most. There will be a non-exclusive easement covering your entire property, not just the footprint of the turbine and the access road. They can install, construct, remove, relocate, replace, use, maintain, and operate roads, bridges, culverts, staging and laydown areas as they see fit. They can construct a battery storage system. Contracts do not specify how big this is or that there is any additional . . .

    Imminent danger for birds flying the Eastern Seaboard/Atlantic migratory route

    Dear National Wind Watch, I have lived on Monhegan island in Maine for 30 years. Monhegan Island is a small island (1 mi × 3/4 mi) that is located 13 miles off of the coast of Maine, USA, and is a stop-off for many species of birds traveling the Eastern/Atlantic Migratory Flyway route north in the spring and south in the fall along the Eastern coast. In many cases the island is the first piece of land that birds see . . .

    Reasons NOT to Sign a Wind Contract

    Turbines cost you money The future of farming is in efficiency and precision. Turbine roads and towers decrease efficiency every time a field is worked whether it is planting, harvesting, tillage, spraying or other applications. Major seed companies will be less likely to grow seed corn near turbines. They need to be expedient with aerial applications which turbines hinder. Turbines can interfere with GPS, drones and any newer technology that requires a consistent signal. They do not offer nearly enough . . .
