Big Wind bouncers make bad neighbors

Nov. 15, I attended the Apex public information meeting for the Firelands Wind LLC-Emerson Creek Project (OPSB case # 18-1607-EL-BGN). These public meetings are required by administrative rules for the Ohio Power Siting Board under OAC 4906-3-03. The meeting had some poster presentations and a map which depicted the locations of 655-foot-tall industrial yurbines. The majority of the 84 turbines will be in Erie and Huron counties. At one point during the meeting, I stopped to speak with a couple . . . Complete story »

Commissioner Stacy’s job is to represent residents

When we read Commissioner Stacy’s editorial from November 20, two words stood out boldly to us…I feel. She stated, “It has been worth it to do what I feel is right for the people of Seneca County.” Commissioner Stacy was not elected to do what she feels. She is being paid by tax dollars from Seneca County citizens to represent the people of the county. It is not representation when she votes for what she feels. Commissioner Stacy should attend . . .

PAULDING – The Ohio Power Sitting Board held a public meeting to discuss the proposed Timber Road Wind Farm IV on Tuesday in Paulding.

Local wind energy project faces opposition

BELLEVUE – The debate surrounding local wind energy pits neighbor against neighbor. That’s what Chris Bauer, a Bellevue resident who is part of the Seneca Anti-Wind Union, said about the proposed plans for the Emerson Creek Wind Project in Erie and Huron counties. “We moved up here two and half years ago and found out we had wind turbines going through our neighborhood … We got prepared, got educated and now we are here fighting the Emerson Creek Project in Huron . . .

‘It’s homeowners against the wind companies’

While many may see the wind turbine projects as making positive impacts locally, Deborah Hay, of Bellevue, said she has a different perspective. Hay attended a public meeting held by Apex Clean Energy on Nov. 15 in Norwalk. She said she was kicked out after asking questions and being incorrectly accused to “signing people up” against the project. “They know me and they know I’m against it,” she said. “I believe that my experience is just one more example of . . .

Are wind turbines really good for economy, environment?

In a column Saturday, Gordon Gray of sPower replied to some questions. I feel that some of his answers leave out enough facts to cause misdirection in the minds of those who have not thoroughly researched wind projects. Here is my reply to Mr. Gray’s comments: 1. True, the Seneca Wind project will connect to the same grid that serves Seneca County. 2. The Seneca Wind project, just like every other wind project, will have an effect on electricity prices, . . .

Turbines blowing hot air into the area

Beware of what you read. Well, the wind is beginning to blow into Erie and Huron counties in the form of up to 655-foot tall industrial wind turbines (IWT). Apex Clean Energy of Charlottesville, Va., has just announced its Emerson Creek Wind project, which could number up to 84 IWTs, according to its “public” informational meeting at Norwalk on Nov. 15. I emphasize the word “public” since one of our group members got escorted out by Huron County Sheriff’s Office . . . Complete story »

Infrasound effects

I congratulate Seneca County for being selected to participate in one of the largest experiments to determine the effects of infrasound on human organ systems. With large numbers of massive wind turbines planned in this densely populated county, medical effects on internal organs can be analyzed. The size of the proposed wind turbines ensures the generation of low-frequency infrasound. The proximity of wind turbines to schools guarantees that as children age, internal organ deterioration can be compared to child control . . . Complete story »

Blinded by money

I read the following statement at the Nov. 20 county commissioner’s meeting. Public comment: I wasn’t going to attend today’s commissioners meeting, since I didn’t think it would be worth my time, but then I read Commissioner (Holly) Stacy’s letter to the editor in today’s Advertiser-Tribune and I changed my mind. Commissioner Stacy, in your letter, you referred to “facts have been misconstrued” and “not sharing real facts” or “not stopping misinformation.” I take personal offense to your comments since . . .

Think about wind turbine setbacks

A recent lawsuit filed in Paulding County alleges that wind turbine setbacks are too restrictive here in Ohio. What they don’t want you to know is that wind turbine setbacks are being increased in many counties, states and countries as we learn more and more about health and safety risks. Those setbacks are in place to ensure safety for those living around industrial wind turbines and even at its present form, does not completely protect Ohio’s rural residents. Blade failure . . .
