Unintended consequences

I attended the Seneca County commissioner’s meeting Tuesday and read the following statement: I am really disappointed to see the commissioners continue to ignore how devastating the wind turbine debate has been in our rural communities. The debate has turned neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend and even has come between family members. The debate is heartbreaking and is ripping out the hearts of our citizens. You continue to keep the AEZ (alternative energy zone) in place that will only . . . Complete story »

Gadfly on wind

Recently, TiffinOhio.net posted a story on a hit piece written by a top-level pro-industry group. It attacked a non-politician local citizen for his work in pointing out to our county commissioners the reasons why the proposed wind projects are not a good fit for Seneca County. Somehow the writer of the piece (who is in the Washington, D.C., area) seems to think he knows what is best for our county from a place that is 400 miles away in distance . . . Complete story »

The high cost of being a ‘Good Neighbor’ to Big Wind

As representatives from “Big Wind” companies in our area go door to door, consider the following before signing a lease on the hood of your car. • “Good Neighbor Agreement” is a wind lease which allows the developer to place the turbines closer to occupied structures and property lines than current Ohio regulation allows. Typically, the GNA will pay a leaseholder $500 per year after the project is operational. The lease is permanent, whether the turbines are installed or not. . . . Complete story »

What is next and what can I do?

If you have been following the highly contentious wind turbine projects, you will know there is so much happening at such a rapid rate that it is nearly impossible to keep up with the statuses of both of the proposed projects in Seneca County. I have had people tell me that they are voting “no” on the wind turbine projects on the November ballot because they are against them. Unfortunately, there is no such vote. I have had people ask . . . Complete story »

Conneaut could file lawsuit over wind turbine

CONNEAUT – The city of Conneaut is moving closer to filing a lawsuit regarding a lightning-damaged wind turbine overlooking Lake Erie. Legal action may be imminent, Conneaut City Manager James Hockaday said at a recent City Council meeting. A year-long contractual window given the turbine’s owner to make repairs expired in August, clearing the way for the city to pursue a remedy in the courts. “We’re in the process of making that filing,” Hockaday told council. Conneaut Law Director Kyle Smith . . . Complete story »

LEEDCo wind farm won’t harm environment: DOE rules

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The U.S. Department of Energy this week ruled that the proposed wind farm project in Lake Erie will have no significant impact on the environment. The ruling, following a two-year review mandated by federal law, means the federal agency’s funding arm can continue to support the Lake Erie Energy Development Co.’s proposal to build a six-turbine wind farm 8 to 10 miles offshore. “We are pleased that that U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, . . .

sPower go home

I attended a Seneca County commissioners meeting last week and it felt like we were being invaded by sPower. At least four good-sized men sat in the back and said not a word but made a very intimidating statement just by their presence. With all the bad publicity that sPower has been receiving in this area, what kind of a statement are they trying to make now? Over the past months, sPower intimidated leaseholders by using legal loopholes to not . . . Complete story »
