Anti-wind group getting organized

Opponents of proposed wind farms in the Newfound Lake region are getting organized. They hope that they’re forming the foundation of a state-wide anti-wind effort. Newfound Lake Wind Watch has changed its name to New Hampshire Wind Watch: it has a new website, work committees, petitions and letter writing campaigns.

Wind Watch member, April Dugan says so far the members of the group are just centered on Newfound lake, where Iberdrola Renewables has proposed putting up 37 turbines. “Our major focus is to educate people first, so they can make their own decision,” Dugan says.

Dugan says 400 people have signed a petition in opposition to the proposed wind farm, and opponents have sent hundreds of letters to local and federal representatives.

At least on the state level, the group has found a champion: a house rep. from Grafton – Skip Reilly has filed a bill asking for a moratorium on new wind farms.

Anti-wind groups say New Hampshire needs to create a state energy plan before moving forward with any new generation projects.
