Not in support of reforming Ohio’s wind farm law  

Credit:  Not in support of reforming Ohio's wind farm law: Letters to the Editor | The Plain Dealer | September 28, 2017 | www.cleveland.com ~~

I write in response to the Plain Dealer’s editorial support of Ohio Senate Bill 188, legislation that seeks to reduce the minimum safe distance that a wind farm developer may locate a wind turbine generator adjacent to a non-participating property owner’s property line. I write because the editorial fails to even mention the fact that public officials in this nation and elsewhere are increasing the minimum setback distances to better serve health, safety and land use regulation objectives. I write because the editorial ignores the fact that current law allows a wind farm developer to evade the minimum setback distances by securing a waiver from adjoining property owners.

Thus, SB 188 seeks to authorize a wind farm developer to negatively affect the rights of adjoining property owners over the objections of adjoining property owners. I write because the editorial ignores the fact that safety manuals issued by wind turbine manufacturers contain minimum safe distance specifications that are greater than those advanced by SB 188. I write because SB 188 fails to properly balance the interests of property owners who get paid by wind farm developers with the interests of non-participating owners of property that adjoin the wind farm property.

Sam Randazzo,

Columbus
