These wind energy policies are definitely not good for clean energy

The long-range forecast for five-hundred-foot-tall wind turbine farms in Central New Hampshire is revving up – just in time for summer residents to hear all about it.

Developers of these large wind farm projects are essentially looking for an easy win, in a small town, to start building. It’s that simple. And believe this: there are lobbyist in Concord who are strongly pushing for another wind farm to be built. The pressure’s on.

While other states have put moratoriums in place, New Hampshire has not. So, what happens down the road is being decided upon right now by our energy legislative panel. Let’s hope our voices are heard before developers promised revenues are thrown around like bribes.

And don’t forget, it’s your renewable energy fund that’s being misspent. Taxes collected should be spent on renewable initiatives. It’s that simple. It’s why these taxes are collected in the first place.

These wind energy policies are definitely not good for clean energy. And many wind farms are backed by large corporations locking in low electrical rates for the next 20 years. Big businesses win again. It’s not about the consumer winning at all. It’s about you and I paying for it.

So, while some people believe wind turbines drop from the heavens above ever so softly on our mountaintops. I know better and so do you. Many are constructed in China – like our children’s toys – that are promised not to have toxic chemicals in them.

One last thing: Remember our Massachusetts neighbors have rejected building wind farms on their soil or shores for years. They don’t want to look at them or deal with them either, but they’re just fine on building them on our mountaintops.

We are N.H. Wind Watch. Remember that.

We are exclusively comprised of individuals and our sole contributions. We’re motivated by our love of New Hampshire and our desire to preserve its natural beauty of our mountains, lakes and landscapes.

It’s that simple.
