Wake up America, preserve our community 

Credit:  March 27, 2013 | www.limaohio.com ~~

Large energy companies have moved into our area with their highly subsidized energy programs in the name of “green energy” to save America from the plight of global warming. This is their endeavor to comply with the state commitment to have 12.5 percent of Ohio’s electricity come from renewable sources, like wind and solar.

People will welcome them especially if they offer a few with the big bucks and promise large tax returns to schools, townships and counties. They will get accustomed to the shadow flicker, noise, and reduction of emergency medical care flights, reduced home values and environmental and wildlife degradation of the local environment. We see it happening in adjacent areas and plan to move into our area.

A local group, “Neighbors United,” hopes to limit this plight in our area. Representatives of the energy company enter into our area with easy money, promise of environmental contribution and with large government subsidies to secure wind leases over our land. Once secured they move on when completed. They take what they can without concern of what they leave.

Who pays for these turbines? One-third of the cost is paid by the federal government with the remaining cost through power increase paid by the users. At present time the cost of electricity in Ohio is 10 percent higher than in Indiana and 26 percent higher than in Kentucky and Ohio is going to go higher to pay for wind energy.

Your participation with the local group is important. The next meeting is Thursday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. at the Rockford Historical Museum, Rockford Village Hall, on East Columbia St., East of state Route 118.

— Roy Thompson, Rockford, Co-Chair “Neighbors United”
