Antrim residents want new wind project hearing

ANTRIM – Residents who live close to the Antrim Wind Project near Gregg Lake say the project is out of compliance with state guidelines, and that they have not been given a chance to weigh in on the problems. Antrim Wind, a project owned by Canadian utility company TransAlta, is made up of nine wind turbines spread out across 1,700 acres in Antrim. 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 »

Subsidies a bone of contention as renewable energy producers seek federal ruling

Supporters of expanding renewable energy are headed for a showdown with New England’s energy market operator at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission over an arcane rule that could have major implications in the near future for how much is invested in solar and offshore wind compared to natural gas. Debate over the true cost of developing solar and offshore wind projects has led to two competing proposals – one from the regional energy market operator ISO-New England and the other . . .

Antrim turbines churn up controversy

Several months ago, the Antrim selectmen participated in a listening session in which Antrim residents who live nearby the wind turbines erected by Antrim Wind Energy (AWE) and taken over by TransAlta, a Canadian company, complained of noise the turbines made. The residents believe that the level of noise does not comply with the standards described in the order the NH Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) set forward in the Conditions of AWE’s Certificate. That listening session occurred at the end . . . Complete story »

In New Hampshire, time hasn’t healed rift over wind turbines in wildlife area

Almost a year after nine wind turbines began spinning atop the Tuttle Hill ridgeline in the small town of Antrim, New Hampshire, few area residents appear to have changed their minds about the hotly debated project. Those who supported it – a majority of Antrim residents, according to Select Board Chair Mike Genest – continue to do so. “Most people looked at it as being a green thing, and I think that’s still the general consensus in town,” Genest said. At the . . . Complete story »

End the tax credits for solar and wind power

Nearly 20 years after Congress approved the first tax breaks for wind power, renewable-energy producers are still profiting from the subsidies at the expense of taxpayers and electricity consumers. What’s more, the rush to renewable energy is undermining the viability of the electric power system, pushing scores of base-load natural gas, coal and nuclear plants into premature retirement and putting grid reliability at risk. The Energy Policy Act of 1992 created what’s known as the production tax credit, which gives . . . Complete story »

Noise from Antrim wind turbines draws complaints

ANTRIM – The controversy that has long dogged Antrim Wind Energy continues, with a number of people who live near the site raising concerns about the amount of noise produced there. On Wednesday, the N.H. Site Evaluation Committee held a virtual meeting during which members heard comments from neighbors of the facility. They said the wind farm, a nine-turbine facility that went into service on Dec. 24, 2019, has been a significant detriment to their quality of life. The Site Evaluation . . . Complete story »
