Wind energy company ready to make a case for turbines to reluctant Clinton Co.

CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. – The argument over whether to allow wind turbines in Clinton County has been turbulent, to say the least. The Chicago-based renewable energy company E.ON has been pursuing placing turbines in the county since 2013, when it first arrived to gauge support for a 39,000-acre project in the northeast part of Clinton County. E.ON is hosting an open house Thursday in Frankfort to address the backlash from Clinton County residents and a nonprofit group called Responsible Harvest. . . . Complete story »

PRINCETON – Weather experts last week confirmed to local officials some of the same concerns voiced in July to Gibson County Commissioners about a proposed wind farm’s potential impact on the Doppler radar tower in Gibson County. Notes were made available to Gibson County Commissioners and others from a private fact-finding meeting Aug. 20 with National Weather Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration experts and Gibson and Posey County officials.

Can wind turbines blow away Tri-State weather warnings?

When clouds turn dark and storm sirens blare, Doppler radar keeps spinning. It tells meteorologists what’s happening in the center of severe storms. Everyone in the Tri-State, including the Eyewitness News weather team, relies on Doppler to look ahead and issue warnings. But what if there was something blocking the eye in the sky? When it comes to turbines, there is never enough wind. But there is some worry about a proposed E.ON Energy wind farm in Posey and Gibson . . . Complete story »

Yard signs opposed to proposed wind farm project are disappearing; authorities investigating

It’s generally a quiet town in Poseyville, but the debate over a wind farm has stirred things up in the rural community.

Schrödinger’s CAU

Henry County lawyers might need to consult with quantum physicists to figure out the legal status of a recent wind farm application. Like “Schrödinger’s cat” – the famous thought-experiment where unfortunate kitty is neither alive nor dead until someone actually proves it one way or the other – the case for Calpine’s proposed wind project in northwest Henry County is stuck in legal limbo. Background Calpine requested a commission approved use (CAU) June 4 to move forward with the construction . . . Complete story »

E.ON Wind farm is trespass zoning

I am for the responsible and safe placement of renewable energy that doesn’t affect my safety or property rights. I have the privilege of living out in the country for the peace and quiet. Has anyone ever heard someone say, “I will sell my property to go and live in the middle of a wind farm”? When you live in a rural community as I do, you expect some form of agricultural annoyances. Do you expect industrial annoyances from wind-power . . . Complete story »

Why do wind companies place people beneath turbines?

I once attended a Republican club meeting to ask why our county was pursuing Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs). I questioned a commissioner about impacts of 500′ turbines the height of the tallest skyscraper in downtown Indianapolis. He uttered “sound bites” often heard, “Have you ever stood under a wind turbine?” “They don’t make noise.” “I stood a half hour under one!” I repair aircraft for a living that are more complicated than wind turbines operating across the US. Wind companies, . . . Complete story »

Wind farm permit not approved

Wind is dead in Henry County… or maybe it’s not. Lawyers were still trying to figure out Wednesday morning what exactly happened Tuesday night when the Henry County Planning Commission failed to either approve or deny a wind farm permit request. The parking lots at New Castle Middle School and Bundy Auditorium were close to capacity Tuesday evening. It wasn’t for back-to-school night or a special concert, though. Hundreds of people had shown up, instead, for a government meeting. The . . . Complete story »

Arguments for, against wind farm

Thank you, Henry County, for showing up tonight,” County Commission Ed Tarantino said Tuesday. Tarantino was speaking to the Henry County Planning Commission – and the hundreds of people sitting out in Bundy Auditorium to see how the planning commission voted on a proposed wind farm. The Henry County Planning Commission ultimately did not approve a permit request Tuesday night for the Big Blue River Wind Farm, which is owned by Calpine Corporation. Before their final vote, however, the planning . . . Complete story »
