Hopkinton residents receive letter from wind company offering payments on electric bills

For some residents, however, the money will never be enough. “It is completely inadequate and I view it, as many of us do, as a bribe,” said Janice Pease, a prominent local anti-turbine activist. “We can’t be bribed with money.” When asked if the payments were a bribe, Mr. Copleman said the term bribe was “charged language” and reiterated that the proposal was a response to concerns from residents. “I think people are going to make their own opinion” on whether it is a bribe, Ms. Pullano said.

Wind developer offer: generous or a bribe?

A wind farm developer has offered a deal hard to refuse: three-quarters of your electric bill paid for for 30 years. It would be for almost all year-round residents of Hopkinton. Avangrid Renewables says the idea came out of talks with residents. “The feedback we were getting involved questions about whether people could benefit personally on their electric bills from having a clean energy facility in their community,” said Paul Copleman, Avangrid spokesman. Residents won’t be getting the wind power. . . . Complete story »

Opinion: Amish man who lives in Parishville shares fears about wind farm project

As a member of the Amish community, I would like to share my concerns about the industrial wind project proposed for our area. Amish families use wood for many purposes from heating our homes to cooking, canning, and heating water for cleaning, laundry, and so forth. We work the land, spending long days in the fields from early spring through late fall, so the job of cutting wood for the following year is done during the winter months. Last summer . . .

What is even more disturbing is the blatant disregard of the disastrous combination of herbicides, pesticides, & fertilizers applied to fields all around residents homes in Hopkinton (the combination of these chemicals has never been tested). Chances are you have a well that has been contaminated . . . Complete story »
