    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.

    Safety aspects of Highland Council’s placing of small wind turbines in school playgrounds

    A Review by Stuart Young Consulting (Stuart Young is Chair of the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum) www.caithnesswindfarms.co.uk/SchoolsReport.htm An independent expert review of the safety of putting wind turbines on school premises is essential. Current control measures require head teachers to leave the classroom and venture forth to take windspeed readings and shut down turbines in Hurricane Force wind speeds when “debris and unsecured objects are hurled about”.
