As longtime residents of Riverside County, after many attempts to meet with Supervisor Marion Ashley to discuss the proposed windmills in Snow Creek, we have been met with silence. The county has thrown us residents “under the bus” and do not care to hear any of our concerns.
t matters little to them that we too pay taxes and are trying to preserve our rural way of life, that the wind developers will be stealing our property values, as any property adjacent to windmills is rendered useless, as are the seriously flawed noise studies that are done by the wind industry.
That we will be impacted with noise and visual blight is meaningless to them. They only have one master, and that is the wind industry that subsidizes their political campaigns.
It matters little to them that as more windmills are put up, our rates will increase, as the latest 20 percent by Edison.
Perhaps, this may wake people up to the fact that wind energy will not reduce their bills and the 100+/- MW that they generate does not provide power for the 250,000 homes that they claim.
You are being duped by the wind industry and our politicians.
