    Industrial wind turbines are being proposed in your community

    Industrial wind turbines are being proposed in your community. It may seem like a great opportunity but many people regret signing contracts, others regret not having fought them off and others have fought them off. These are the issues you should educate yourself on. 1. Property values Not many people want to live within an industrial installation so the value of your home will be diminished severely. The Berkley study they will bring out is flawed. 2. Electromagnetic and frequency . . .

    Wind Energy and Birds: Take Action

    What can our readers do to support bird-smart wind energy solutions? First, understand that although climate change is real and must be addressed, we should not be rushing to deploy solutions that damage our continent’s ecologically and economically important birds and bats and their habitats. Beyond their inherent value, these animals perform critical ecological services – such as pest control, pollination, and seed dispersal – that are worth billions of dollars to national economies and enhance the quality of all our lives . . .

    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 . . .

    Oakfield ruined by First Wind (SunEdison, whatever!) turbines: latest photos

    An erstwhile wind warrior grabbed his camera this week and sent in these sad photos of the Oakfield Wind project, still under construction, but with enough turbines up so the impact is clear. First Wind bamboozled the Town of Oakfield with a so-called collaboration with a poor town that was eager for tax revenues and landowners eager to get leasing income. Again, First Wind laughs all the way to the bank, having taken over the town at a cheap, rock-bottom . . .

    Wild Atlantic Way under threat from developers

    First challenge to Wild Atlantic Way – barely one month after its establishment – could set precedent for wind farm/other development on route of the Wild Atlantic Way. OUTLINE – THE FACTS A wind farm of two turbines has permission, following an appeal to An Bord Pleanala, to be built on the route of the Wild Atlantic Way. The developer has recently put in an amendment (1450014) to increase the height by 24% to 132 metres. Donegal County Council refused . . .

    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”. Highland Council recommend exclusion zones for safety reasons – e.g. fall, topple, ejection . . .
