Let’s resist the addition of more turbines  

Credit:  The Huron Daily Tribune | Saturday, March 4, 2017 | www.michigansthumb.com ~~

As a Huron County resident (one of many) we feel that our nice, peaceful rural life is being replaced by a giant industrial energy turbine takeover. The number of turbines in Huron County has reached 443, with another 50 to 70 in the Filion overlay and 65 turbines in the NextEra Sherman-Sigel area approved for possible installation.

According to the Michigan Wind Energy Resource Zone Board report, June 2, 2009, the environmentally friendly plan includes 2,824 turbines for our four-county area. This area includes Huron, Sanilac, Tuscola, and Bay County, of which Huron County is expected to receive the majority of them.

Did they consider that they want to build these 1,000 to 1,500 turbines in our backyard and front yard for this matter, making our beautiful county an industrial wasteland? Do they expect us to live under turbines? Many residents are, and do not like it. It’s not like living next to a farm. A farm is what you expect in a rural community.

DTE, NextEra, and others will be putting thousands of dollars into trying to convince us that we should be OK with this.

It is up to us, the residents of Bingham, Bloomfield, Brookfield, Dwight, Fairhaven, Gore, Grant, Hume, Lincoln, McKinley, Rubicon, Sebewaing, Sheridan, Sherman, Sigel, and Winsor, near or far from the Lincoln or Sherman areas, to put the brakes on these projects and let us continue to live our lives in Huron County.

We are not going to give up. We need your voice. Enough is enough! We, the Huron County Wind Resistance, need to raise money for signs and advertising. We will need your no vote May 2 on Huron County Proposals 1 and 2.
