Wind farm fight is far from over

I would like to address all the good folks who have supported the Tipton County Citizens for Responsible Development: Even though you have heard the word “moratorium,” our fight to stop further wind development in Tipton County is far from over.

There is much work still ahead, and we continue to need your support, research and attendance at commissioners and Plan Commission meetings. Wear white so they know what you stand for. Call your county commissioners and let them know how you feel and what you want them to do about this.

Several of our county leaders have stood up and done the right thing by admitting they probably should have done more research initially. They are to be commended for stepping up and trying to rectify the problem now.

The wind companies are lobbying hard to get construction started before the end of this year when the Production Tax Credit that fuels their development may run out.

This is not the time to get complacent; the wind companies are pushing hard and we have to push back if we want to protect our home values, health and safety.
