Concerned Citizens have made voices heard on wind turbines

BRANCH COUNTY – As people spoke out against DTE and its planned Branch County wind farm, a group coalesced and incorporated into Concerned Citizens of Branch County, a non-profit. The leaders are newcomers, long time families, farmers, and recently returned who promise to make sure zoning regulation will protect the homes and health of the residents in the affected townships. Wind turbine energy has been a goal of the green energy movement which moved into Michigan solidly over a decade ago. . . . Complete story »

Galloo Island wind farm causes concern for fish, birds, tourism

Effects on fish, birds and tourism were the primary concerns of commenters at a public session about the Galloo Island wind farm project Oct. 17 in Oswego City Hall. The comments were very similar to those given at a previous comment session on the project held the night before in the town of Hounsfield, Jefferson County. Nearly 450 comments have been written online about the project and they echo many of the same issues. Residents, seasonal folks and those who . . . Complete story »

A question of VPIRG’s conflicts

VPIRG also denied there were any noise issues with industrial scale wind projects, ignoring or dismissing people who testified that they could no longer live in their homes near these projects. VPIRG’s latest performance, trying to block standards meant to protect the public, was in 2017 front of the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules whose sole job was to make sure new laws meet the rule of intent. New sound standards were formulated by the Public Service Board and the Department of Public Service to try to solve some of the noise disturbances next to industrial wind power projects so people could have better living conditions.

Issues in the governor’s race: Energy policy

No governor can lower your energy bill, or guarantee a business that its rates won’t rise. Nor can he or she slow the pace of climate change and its potential consequences for Maine. Not directly, anyway. But Maine’s next governor, through the energy policies he or she pursues, can influence what you pay for energy, send critical signals that encourage or hinder economic growth and guide the degree to which the state embraces renewable power sources that further reduce greenhouse-gas . . .

Downsides of wind

I read with interest a Midlands Voices article (“Tariffs could slow wind energy,” Oct. 12 World-Herald) urging tariff exemptions for wind energy components. Wind companies have reaped billions (estimated $4.8 billion in 2018) via tax credits – evidently they are looking for yet more, despite claims wind is ready to energize sans tax credits. Tax credits, not saving the environment, are the reason these companies are in the wind business. Contrary to wind propaganda statements, wind turbines are destructive to the . . . Complete story »

Group opposing wind farm project shares research

ERIE – Green wind energy sounds appealing as companies propose leasing land to build new wind farms that would help counties with job creation and economic development efforts. Concerned citizens in Neosho County have been researching the impacts of wind farms on counties and found things to not be so green, including claimed financial benefits to counties and landowners. About 30 people met Wednesday night at Tony’s Function Junction south of Erie to discuss the proposed Apex Clean Energy wind farm . . . Complete story »

Neosho Ridge: Proximity to homes is a concern for citizen group

ERIE – Citizens concerned about the Neosho Ridge Wind Project expressed some alarm on Wednesday about how close the wind turbines would be to homes. Dustie Elsworth, rural Erie, said he and others have been in contact with Apex Clean Energy, the company proposing the wind project, in an attempt to negotiate the company’s proposed setback of 1,400 feet from homes’ foundations, not property lines. Given the proposed height of the turbines of 610 feet, based on forms filed by Apex . . . Complete story »

Give Scots a wind veto

Once again we have to endure the wealthy wind industry’s trade association, Scottish Renewables, roll out one of their astonishing propaganda press releases trying to convince the policy makers that rural Scots support more onshore wind development (“Support for wind farms”, The Herald, October 18). This is an industry that has seen its subsidy cash cow being led off to the abattoir to be put out of its misery and is desperately trying to resuscitate it with help from the . . . Complete story »
