Wind energy law discussed in Freedom

With a copy of the Town of Freedom’s wind energy facilities law in hand, Town Supervisor Randy Lester invited residents to speak on the subject at Freedom’s June meeting. Lester stressed that the document is a local law on windmills “and has nothing to do with a contract with Invenergy.” Lester also said that other nearby towns [with whom Invenergy may be contracting for wind turbine placement] are using Freedom’s law to tailor their own wind energy laws.

All-renewable energy is a prescription for disaster

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned the Democratic establishment by crushing incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in the primary race in New York’s 14th Congressional District. She successfully portrayed Crowley as out of touch with his constituents. “He works for corporations, and I work for people,” she said. But for all of Ocasio-Cortez’s woman-of-the-people claims, her energy politics are completely disconnected from reality. More important, they’re deeply regressive and, if implemented, would hurt the very same poor and middle-class voters she claims to champion. . . . Complete story »

Meisner held a presentation Monday to answer questions from the board about Avangrid Renewables’ planned 320-megawatt project including turbine . . . Complete story »

Kudos also to their Parishville neighbors, who achieved a similar victory last year. Many people feel that wind energy development is a good thing and perhaps it is okay in some places. But the citizens of Hopkinton educated themselves on its effects on people’s health, property values, . . . Complete story »
