Support for commissioners decision on wind farm  

Credit:  Letter to the Editor: Support for commissioners decision on wind farm | Reaction to wind farm decision | Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum | May 15, 2022 | www.bucyrustelegraphforum.com ~~

My take on commissioners voting on May 5 to restrict industrial wind farm development in Crawford County:

The resolution is only good for 10 years.

It won’t cost anyone by going in, and it comes from those that haven’t checked out losses the residents face.

Everyone should respect the rights of the leaseholders for their property, and non-leaseholders ask the same: Do not infringe your greed for money and total disrespect for their properties.

Studies submitted to the Ohio Power Siting Board are one-sided â€“ not researched by a nonpartisan group but by companies that get paid from the same purse as Apex Clean Energy. They also get government subsidies from our tax dollars.

Pro-wind farm speakers made claims about turbines that are 20-30 years old. But they don’t last that long. Information is available on the turbines’ short lifespans and failures.

A comparison of turbines to energy pipelines is not valid. Pipelines are underground and do not reduce property values, cause health problems, disrupt wildlife, or cause visual pollution in our precious countryside.

Stating the majority of taxes come from farmers, why are they getting breaks on their taxes? Breaks in stores, roads, properties, and fuel. Where are my tax breaks?

By stating the referendum is overstepping the jobs of the public servants, who do they work for? This was not a government overreach by local residents over the servants, this was to stop the overreach by an outside company, Apex, wanting to infringe on our community.

Apex speaks of money as the main benefit to the community. Are there any other positives they can give?

Thank the Lord he opened the eyes to those that made this turn out as it did. Thank you to all that have put so much effort to fight and stand behind us!

Jenice Hensley, Bucyrus
