Proposed Icebreaker wind project is not what it seems

It is hard to know where to start dissecting the slick spin-doctoring recently published in The Blade’s Op-Ed pages by LEEDCo, the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp., which wants to erect North America’s first freshwater offshore wind-turbines in central Lake Erie off Cleveland. So-doing would reach far beyond the scope of a newspaper “op-ed.” Beth Nagusky, LEEDCo’s director of sustainable development, is a master at cherrypicking and parading obscure statements as a fait-accompli. Her contentions about the goodness of the . . . Complete story »

Murray Energy Corp. is just trying to get the facts out about wind-power costs

The Plain Dealer’s Aug. 5, 2018 article “Big Coal joins fight against Lake Erie green energy turbines” was not as balanced as it should have been and omitted critical facts that your readers are entitled to know. Murray Energy Corp.’s only interest in the Icebreaker project is to get the facts out relative to the unreliability of wind power and the cost of electricity to consumers and ratepayers generated by it. A $4.5 billion wind power project by an Ohio-based . . . Complete story »

Big Coal joins fight against Lake Erie green energy wind turbines

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Boaters and birders have been upfront about their opposition to the six-turbine Icebreaker Wind project planned for Lake Erie, but a new, powerful voice of resistance has recently emerged: Big Coal. In documents and sworn statements filed with the Ohio Power Siting Board on Thursday, the wind farm developers presented evidence that Murray Energy Corp. has been bankrolling anti-Icebreaker consultants, as well as lawyers representing two Bratenahl residents who have testified against the project.

Aren’t 143 wind turbines enough?

To Holly Stacy and Shayne Thomas, Over the past few months, you have been presented with the following verified information: 1. The total revenue coming into Seneca County from all sources associated with Republic Wind and Seneca Wind projects combined is less than 45 cents per day per person in the county. 2. You, the commissioners, have full authority over whether a wind turbine project receives a tax break. 3. The history of wind projects in Ohio is that they . . . Complete story »

Lake Erie wind power project receives clean water certification by Ohio EPA

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The construction of a six-turbine wind project planned for 8-to-10 miles northwest of downtown Cleveland will likely not impair the Lake Erie water, the Ohio EPA ruled Monday. The EPA issued a water quality certificate of approval confirming that the Icebreaker Windpower farm has complied with the federal Clean Water Act and will not cause pollution, moving the $126 million project a step closer to construction in 2021. “This is another, important step forward for Icebreaker,” Beth . . .

‘Good Neighbor’ agreement may not be so good

Dear landowners who live within the two proposed wind turbine projects in Seneca County, Thankfully, the proposed changes to the wind turbine setback laws which would have allowed wind turbines to be located closer to your home appear to have stalled in Senate committee in Columbus. This forces Apex and sPower to obtain additional waivers from area landowners before they can proceed with their wind turbine projects. All of the proposed turbine locations are located on properties that are already . . . Complete story »

Wind turbines continue to loom over county residents

The tumultuous wind farm debate, as well as Seneca County Commissioner’s role in it, remained the public’s key concern during Tuesday’s regularly scheduled commissioner’s meeting. As they have in weeks past, anti-wind advocates from the townships attended yesterday’s meeting to speak against erecting wind turbines in Seneca County. Two community members questioned commissioners, Holly Stacy and Shayne Thomas, about their stance on the turbines when there seemed to be a “majority” in the county against the project. They sited the . . . Complete story »

Icebreaker Lake Erie wind project praised, criticized at hearing before state board

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Lingering fears about the impact of a Lake Erie wind farm on birds and bats appears to be the only remaining hurdle to building the first-ever U.S. freshwater wind turbine project. That’s a high hurdle, however, according to a procession of clean water- and bird-loving opponents who delivered emotional appeals to state officials at a public hearing Thursday evening at City Hall. The staff of the Ohio Power Siting Board has recommended the state allow the construction . . . Complete story »

Who is the good neighbor?

As I listen to the ongoing wind turbine debate, I don’t feel the problem is with the concerns of the adjacent landowners but rather the problem is with the wind developers and the wind lease holders. The developers recruit lease holders all based on the power and appeal of money. People talk about the environmental benefits that renewable wind power provides, but at the end of the day, it is all about the money. If the lease holders are so . . . Complete story »
