Apex is the only winner in wind debate  

Credit:  PUBLIC FORUM: Apex is the only winner in wind debate | Daily News | August 13, 2022 | www.thedailynews.cc ~~

When neighbor is pitted against neighbor, friendships are destroyed and nobody wins.

For the past two years, the Daily News has been reporting on the collapse of our townships over discussions involving wind turbines. The only winner in all of this seems to be Apex Clean Energy, the non-Michigan wind energy company that has sat back and watched as people who used to be friends and colleagues disrespect each other with their words and actions.

It’s time for townships to turn this over to the people who will be affected the most – all of the township citizens. We are the ones who will either benefit or suffer from the placement of turbines and should have the final vote on the future of wind energy in our own backyards. Right now, the township boards and planning commissions have the final say in this matter. Yet, some of these community representatives are also benefiting the most financially through agreements with the true winner – Apex.

Every township citizen should have the chance to vote on this (and not just by speaking up at meetings – there’s been enough of that.) Let our votes decide if wind turbines are good for our communities, not Apex and not a handful of township officials. Too many friendships have already been destroyed and so far, nobody is the winner.
