Leave rural Ohio alone when it comes to wind energy  

Credit:  Leave rural Ohio alone when it comes to wind energy: Letter to the Editor | The Plain Dealer | August 16, 2017 | www.cleveland.com ~~

Wind energy and two words in the English language are synonymous with each other – hypocrisy and scam. Politicians along with the local media have been pushing wind energy onto an uneducated public – many of whom do not even reside in rural areas, that wind energy will save our dying planet from environmental collapse while boosting an impoverished economy. The “promises” that wind energy will bring “thousands of good paying jobs”, “support communities” and help farmers that are struggling with near poverty incomes are being drummed into the public’s mind.

Ohio’s rural communities have steadily gained in population and I find it difficult for anyone to force their opinions regarding industrial wind development on those of us in rural Ohio. Ohio’s setback requirements are in place for two reasons – safety and protection of personal property rights. The new setback proposal would allow the construction of 500′-600′ high industrial wind turbines to be measured from a non-participating land owner’s home rather than their property line – a change that would reduce the distance that these obnoxious pieces of equipment could be built by almost half. We deserve the rights to our property and homes, leave rural Ohio alone and save the setbacks.

Chris Zeman,
