    Let’s Stop the Lava Ridge Project!

We aim to educate people about the project, share ways people can help stop the project, and advocate our cause to local and state government leaders. Many believe . . .

    Changes to the regulation of wind farm noise – Victoria, Australia

    New regulations of wind energy facilities in Victoria are proposed to ensure that the amenity of local communities is protected and to provide certainty for industry. These will replace interim regulations, which are due to expire in October 2022. What is being proposed? Three alternative approaches to wind farm noise regulation have been assessed in a regulatory impact statement (RIS), prepared by Deloitte Access Economics: No additional regulation – relying on general provisions within the Environment Protection Act 2017 Direct . . .

    In response to Coillte’s planning application to Leitrim/Sligo Counties

    OUTRAGED RURAL COMMUNITY ACCUSES Semi State COILLTE of GOLIATH v DAVID–style BULLYING TACTICS Local community group, WIND AWARE DROMAHAIR, claims that Coillte representatives assured them in 2018 that their proposed Croagh Windfarm, of GIANT wind turbines, would be fully compliant with the new, albeit still draft, Planning Guidelines.

    Please write a letter of support for Ohio House Bill 401 (Reineke Referendum)

    The major provision of HB401 allows local voters in individual townships to vote on industrial wind turbine projects which have been ap-proved by the Ohio Power Siting Board for the areas in which these local voters live. Currently, there is no local vote allowed by Ohio law. There is no local control. The bill also requires the use of safety manuals to determine safe setbacks. The opposition pushback against local control is fierce. We must let those we elect to . . .
