What’s that noise? SEC hears windmills

The state Site Evaluation Committee is one pretty powerful entity, which is why its action, or lack thereof, in the Antrim windmill project was so disconcerting. The SEC seems to have righted itself on this one, but only after state senators called it to task for ignoring windmill neighbors’ complaints. The complaints include the noise level the turbines are generating, as well as the lights that are glowing when they should not be. The SEC granted Antrim Wind an exemption . . . Complete story »

The project was approved by the state’s Site Evaluation Committee with limits on the amount of noise the . . . Complete story »

N.H. Senate advances offshore wind procurement plan with near-unanimous vote

The New Hampshire state Senate on Thursday advanced a plan to require utility investment in large offshore wind energy projects and other renewable sources. The proposal for what’s known as a “procurement program” passed on a bipartisan 23 to 1 vote. The amended bill would have a new state committee solicit proposals from New Hampshire utilities for connecting the regional grid to at least 600 megawatts of new offshore wind on the East Coast, and up to 800 megawatts of . . .

NH Senate panel weighs state’s role in promoting offshore wind

Should a bill designed to procure offshore wind for New Hampshire go further, and specify other forms of renewable energy, or is going too far and locking the state into long-term contracts it might regret? Senate Bill 151 was introduced Monday to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which will try to address both concerns by the time it votes on it Wednesday. When it comes to renewable energy, the potential of offshore wind dwarfs nearly all the rest. . . . Complete story »

New Hampshire looks at offshore wind turbines for renewable energy

The Seacoast region is in the early stages of evaluating the challenges and opportunities of offshore wind renewable energy generation with wind turbines off the local coastline. Because the more than 800-foot-tall wind turbines would be anywhere from 10 to 20 miles away from the shore, experts said, they should not be very visible from the shore and they will be out far enough to avoid interfering with commercial fishing operations. But building a multi-billion-dollar offshore wind project like this . . . Complete story »
