Don’t like to brag … but maybe just this one time?

My parents taught me not to brag. Even when it came to athletic endeavors, Dad always said, “Let your game do the talking.” Well, what’s the fun in that? Just kidding. But this is one time – as word came last week that Apex Energy will halt its plans for the Crab Orchard Wind Farm “indefinitely” – I would like to do a bit of bragging. First, I think the Fairfield Glade community as a whole deserves to be bragged upon. Not . . .

A look back at the Wind Farm journey

Starting in March of 2016, The Vista – “Fairfield Glade’s Community Newspaper” – informed its readers about the Apex Wind Farm project and the issues it presented to us and all of Cumberland County through nearly 50 articles and commentaries – not including countless Letters to the Editor allowing residents to speak their mind about the project. Here is a look back, chronologically, at some of the highlights: 2014 Cumberland County leaders met with Apex Energy to hear about a proposed Wind . . .

Alexander says Tennessee has opportunity to decide whether wind turbines are acceptable

Lamar Alexander on Thursday said Governor Haslam’s signature on legislation approved by the Tennessee General Assembly will give Tennesseans “an opportunity to decide whether we want our landscape littered with unreliable wind turbines over two times as tall as the skyboxes at the University of Tennessee football stadium.” “I am glad Governor Haslam and the General Assembly approved legislation to prohibit the construction of some Tennessee wind farms for one year and instead give the state a chance to study . . .

Senate vote last Thursday freezes Wind Farm project

On April 25th, the Tennessee House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly (85 to 3) in favor of Bill HB1021. But nothing was official until the Senate gave its stamp of approval.

And don’t forget to thank Sen. Bailey and Rep. (Cameron) Sexton,” said a Cumberland Mountain Preservation Coalition representative. It . . .

Purchasing wind power doesn’t make sense

You would think that if a utility buys wind and solar power that it would be a boon to consumers by lowering prices – but you would be wrong. Imagine that your utility calls and says we’ve had 10 days of rain and no wind and we don’t have enough power. You can have electricity six hours a day. Utilities have to maintain capacity with nuclear, fossil fuels and hydro. They have to keep these generating units and payrolls in . . .
