Farm & ranch land destruction/Loss of tax base 

Credit:  LETTER: Farm & Ranch Land Destruction/Loss of Tax Base | The Dickinson Press | Jan 3, 2018 | www.thedickinsonpress.com ~~

Fact: Each industrial wind turbine base removes 1.5 to 3 acres of farm/ranch ground from farm/ranch production.

Fact: Industrial wind turbines remove additional acres of farm/ranch from agricultural production as a result of road construction & attendant road ditches, underground cabling, compaction of soil from massive construction cranes & staging equipment, including substations.

Fact: After the initial construction of a turbine and later after the decommissioning, harvest yields are diminished forever, far beyond the relatively short life span of a turbine project.

FINANCIAL IMPACT TO BOWMAN COUNTY: (of a brobdingnagian scale)

What impact will the overall project of wind turbines have on the tax base of Bowman County, after the soil is permanantly destroyed and yields drop?

Fact: February 5, 2016, Bowman County Pioneer Press

Howard Kruger/Scott Koziar, APEX Clean Energy L.L.C. representatives present wind turbine project of 100-300 wind turbines, at ‘invitation only’ meeting held on January 29, 2016 @ the Bowman Lodge. (Note: The meeting was ‘not’ public.)


Conflicting information has been presented over a period of time, at times with the project doubling in both size & scope.

What is the truth?

How massive is this proposed project?

Whom shall we trust?

What will be the overall financial impact on Bowman County over the long term?

What will be the overall financial impact on the State of North Dakota over the long term?

(Fact: the majority of financial investors in these proposed wind projects are foreign entities (hidden in the private financials of an L.L.C.), thus will the Bowman County citizens and/or the citizens of the great state of North Dakota be responsible for the exorbitant decommissioning expenses? All proposed project decommissioning bonds need to be 100% funded upfront and ‘all’ funds need to be deposited into a North Dakota domiciled financial entity.)
