To the residents of Tipton County

To the residents of Tipton County, Indiana, plus any other County in the United States of America who are in the process of considering to allow an Industrial Wind Farm invade your county. In Tipton County it would appear that we have an elected official who is letting his ignorance overpower his duty of serving the residents of the county. I have heard that this person claims there have been no complaints about the Wildcat Wind Farm. Maybe he has . . . Complete story »

DOE drops its deal with Clean Line; Wind project won’t cross Arkansas

Two months after planners gave up hopes of crossing Arkansas with a $2.5 billion wind-energy transmission line as doomed, the U.S. Department of Energy hammered a nail in the project’s coffin Friday by ending its participation in the Plains & Eastern Clean Line. The Energy Department made the announcement in Washington, reversing an Obama-era decision to back the project, which would have built a massive 700-mile power line from the wind farms of the Oklahoma to a terminal north of . . .

Wind energy plan raises environmentalists’ ire

Opposition to a new “clean” energy project near Searchlight is coming from an unlikely source – environmentalists. As the Review-Journal’s Henry Brean reports, a Swedish company wants to put up to 220 wind turbines along a 22-mile swatch of land west of Searchlight. The turbines would be at least 410 feet tall. The Bureau of Land Management is currently conducting an environmental review. Politicians frequently tell the public that wind energy is environmentally friendly. Not this project, claim more than a . . . Complete story »

Caution urged with renewable energy contracts

TABER, Alta. – Southern Alberta’s abundance of sun and wind continues to attract proposals for wind and solar farms, but landowners should be wary about the contents of any contracts they sign, says a landowner advocate. Daryl Bennett, vice-president of industry and government regulatory affairs for the My Landman Group, said those who negotiate contracts for renewable energy projects have no licencing requirements or standard of conduct, unlike the land agents who negotiate oil and gas leases. “We’re very worried about . . .

Nothing about wind energy policy is conservative

We are writing in response to Mr. Mike Pullins’ letter to the editor printed in the Urbana Daily Citizen on March 10, 2018. Mr. Pullins presumes many things. We don’t think the citizens of Champaign County need to be listening to someone talk about this “pro-coal” bias from someone who is a long-time lease holder and who is on the payroll of EverPower. Talk about conflict of interest! We also note that the wind lobby group AWEA (American Wind Energy . . . Complete story »

Proposed wind farm will hurt eagles

Many residents of DeWitt County oppose the development of a proposed wind farm by Trade Winds Energy in the county. This large wind farm would extend from Waynesville to Farmer City, and north from Route 54 to Carle Springs Road. These will not be small towers, 80 meters or shorter, but closer to 600 feet. This will impact the horizon, and also your property values to a far greater extent than the wind farms we have been inundated by. I . . . Complete story »
