Not clean, not green  

Credit:  Concord Monitor | October 4, 2013 | www.concordmonitor.com ~~

Wind energy is among the least effective of renewable energy options, both economically and environmentally. We oppose the continued destruction of our state’s most precious natural resources at the hands of industrial wind developers.

If the wind energy production in New Hampshire is so abundant, why is the wind energy generation output not ever provided to the public?

Wind energy on the New Hampshire ridgelines is not cheap, it is not green, it is not clean, it is not reliable and it is definitely not wanted. The towns around the Newfound Lake and Cardigan Mountain areas are strongly opposed to any additional industrial wind plants and have made that clear through town votes. All it takes is a drive through the area to see very clearly that industrial wind turbines are not wanted.

As recently stated by Gov. Maggie Hassan in her Boston Globe column, “Our natural resources and natural beauty are also essential to our travel and tourism economy – our second largest industry – which generates billions of dollars and creates thousands of jobs. Year-round, visitors come from across the country and around the world to ski our mountains, hike our trails and kayak on our lakes.”

We need to preserve the beauty of our state, not allow industrial wind turbines to forever destroy our beautiful scenery and pristine lake. Why should New Hampshire be expected to sacrifice our economy and quality of life to help Massachusetts meet its Renewable Portfolio Standards goal?
