Who profits from wind power?  

There is no gain from the wind.

Wind energy delivers less than its costs to all: taxpayers, personal health and the environment. It is not the magic bullet as advertised. These claims can be proven. The true facts are always hidden by the developers.

So where is the gain? The only real gain is to the brokers, developers, financial backers and the land lessors who will profit heavily.

Slowly, the world is becoming aware that wind energy is a swindle. Those for wind will soon be seen as blowing smoke.

In towns that have good zoning laws, which do not allow commercial-industrial development, as does Savoy, planning boards should uphold the existing laws rather than ushering in commercial wind plants (these are not farms) through revised bylaws.
