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 . . .
Wind Farms Can Generate Angst
South Australians don’t want to live too close to industrial scale wind generators. We have more wind generation than any other State – in fact, we have one of the highest proportions in the world of wind power generation. More than half of Australia’s installed wind power is in South Australia. Wind-powered generation is seen as totally eco-friendly and green. However, concern is building over its cost, health effects and aesthetics. Community opposition to industrial scale wind generators is increasing. . . .

The size of wind turbines and their towers has grown since the first ones were erected in the California hills in 1970s. Those turbines show us that generating electricity from the wind to save the environment of tomorrow has serious consequences for the environment . . .
