Wedge-tailed eagles killed by wind turbines at Yaloak South wind farm in Moorabool Shire

Wedge-tailed eagles are falling foul of the giant, swift-moving wind turbine blades at Yaloak South wind farm near Ballan. The renewable energy company Pacific Hydro confirmed to The Courier that three deaths of the eagle – Australia’s largest bird of prey – have been recorded at the wind farm since it began operating in Moorabool Shire last year. It bears out the claims of Glenmore-based wildlife campaigner Kevin Ramholdt, who told local radio about the eagles’ deaths last week. The . . . Complete story »

Green T-shirts signal wind opposition at Farmersville meeting

FARMERSVILLE – A sea of green T-shirts at the Farmersville Town Board meeting Monday night were intended to show the board the depth of opposition to the proposed industrial wind turbines of the proposed Alle-Catt Wind Farm. The T-shirts read: “Big Wind Lies” across the front. Town board members did not discuss the results of the recent wind survey of town property owners. The surveys showed 195 residents opposed to the wind farm, 139 in support and 41 undecided. Ginger Schroder, . . . Complete story »

Vocal opposition can drown out money

Recently, there have been several letters published here emphasizing potential revenue the wind industry could provide local school districts, particularly Seneca East. I appreciate the intent expressed in those letters. But in response, I would like to make clear that opposition to the wind industry does not equal opposition to local education. Indeed, many people who have yellow No Wind Turbine signs in their front yards are the same people who helped Seneca East pass its last levy by an . . . Complete story »

Falmouth wind project finally finished

Falmouth Massachusetts – The town that once was host to Governor Deval Patrick’s flagship wind energy project on Cape Cod and the Islands pronounced the Falmouth turbines dead. Four Falmouth Selectmen chose not to relocate either of its two V82 wind turbines to any other site within town. &Only one board member abstained from voting … due likely to his term soon ending and re-election strategy requiring schmoozing the predominate “green-minded” voter precincts in Woods Hole. Since March 2010, when . . . Complete story »

Wind farms and stinky farms

On the west side of Seneca County there is a huge landfill, run by a company called Sunny Farms, only as it turns out, it has become “stinky farms.” This started as a local landfill that has now changed hands several times. It now takes out-of-county and out-of-state waste, including building materials which when decomposing, produces out-gassing that smells like rotten eggs. What does this do to the quality of life, health and property values to nearby residents? Did the . . . Complete story »

Wind turbine fight is far from over

A common question I have been asked is, “Why is the county still looking at information into wind turbines – I thought the project was dead?” My response is, “Yes, the Harvest Wind project is dead, but as long as Cass County still has a weak WECS ordinance, the next wind company will gladly take advantage of the opportunity to build another project.” As many of you remember, it was a long process to have three contracts drawn up for our . . .

Constraints bill for wind is lunacy

The recent coverage of the scandalous amount of money that is being paid out to turn off wind turbines, mainly in Scotland, should make consumers across the UK gasp with disbelief and anger. The reckless deployment of thousands of turbines by the Scottish Government must be halted and only Westminster can bring in legislation to slam the door shut on this absurd constraints jackpot and protect consumers against further unrestrained lunacy. Some developers are applying and getting approval for extensions . . . Complete story »

Wind farm foes dispute economic benefits of project

The Friends of the Huron Mountains (FOHM) group opposing the Summit Lake Wind Project in L’Anse Township disputes the employment figures the project would bring to the area.

Construction of the farm was contracted to Renewal Energy Systems (RES), the developer of the proposed project in L’Anse Township. The RES project manager said deciding . . . Complete story »
