Israel’s Golan Druze see a blow in wind energy plan

The Druze say the turbines present a slew of concerns. They contend that the giant, soaring poles and the infrastructure needed to construct them will impede their ability to work their plots, exacerbating their already tenuous economic situation, which has grown dire since the war in Syria halted their exports to a key market. They also say the turbines will disturb the almost sacred bond they feel to their land, which is passed down by generation and where families flee their cramped villages for fresh air and green space. Landowners who signed lease agreements with Energix, the company behind the project, say they weren’t made aware of the potential implications of having a turbine on their plot. They say they were tempted by hefty sums into signing what they describe as draconian leases that, coupled with a boycott on the company imposed by influential religious leaders, has prompted many to want to withdraw.

Israeli wind farm project unites Jewish settlers, Golan Druze

Emil Masud is an Arab Druze who identifies as “forever Syrian,” and Ofer Megged is an Israeli settler in the contested Golan Heights. They might seem unlikely partners, but a fight to save the environment against Israeli big business has thrust Masud, a local farmer, and Megged, a physics professor, into a burgeoning alliance that is shifting mutual perceptions between the Golan’s Druze and Jews. “Our lands will be destroyed,” Masud told Al-Monitor at his family home in Majdal Shams. . . .

Two lawsuits filed last week have launched fresh legal assaults by foes of further wind-energy development in the Nebraska Sandhills. A state district judge Monday will hear Preserve the Sandhills’ request for an injunction effectively blocking Cherry County commissioners from voting Tuesday on a 19-turbine wind farm west of Kilgore.

Syrian farmers in Golan Heights fear loss of livelihoods, ‘cultural life’ from Israeli wind farm plans

MARJ YAAFOURI, Israeli-occupied Golan Heights: Just downhill from the occupied Syrian villages of Majdal Shams and Masaada, there is a small valley filled with plots of cherry and apple trees. A handful of the orchards reach upwards along the terraced hills that outline the Marj Yaafouri valley, overlooking the trees and a Druze shrine down below. They are owned by local Syrian farmers. Some of the farmers have been tending to these fields, in a spot known locally as Marj . . . Complete story »

Wyoming lawmakers want a share of federal wind fees

A handful of Wyoming lawmakers say the state should receive a share of federal fees on wind and solar projects. A joint resolution sponsored by Sen. Ogden Driskill, R-Devils Tower, and five other lawmakers would urge the U.S. Congress to pass legislation granting states 50 percent for any rent or right-of-way fees for such projects on federal land. For proponents there is no downside to the change. It would not increase the tax and fee burden on wind developers but . . . Complete story »

Wind resistance: Chokecherry/Sierra Madre wind farm project faces levels of opposition
