[Wind turbines: an organized green scam – testimony of an organic farmer (translate article to English)] J’ai 35 ans et je suis agricultrice bio en Auvergne. Il y a deux ans, j’ai été contactée par une entreprise privée qui avait pour projet d’installer un parc d’éoliennes dans ma commune.

State blows smoke to hide wind costs

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s energy agency issued a stern correction to an October 24 blog post in this space that said subsidies for offshore wind developers could cost ratepayers more than $6 billion. NYSERDA, the state Energy Research and Development Authority, said my calculations (which were based on NYSERDA’s own data) were “incorrect and misleading.” So I went back and double-checked. In one respect, I did make a mistake, explained below—but not in reaching the $6 billion estimate. In fact, the . . . Complete story »

Michigan’s not good for wind power, so Consumers Energy customers will pay more

The Michigan Public Service Commission recently approved an application from Consumers Energy to buy an industrial wind farm development in Hillsdale County that is projected to begin operations by December 2020. The Crescent Wind Project is said to have a levelized cost of electricity, a common industry metric, of about $48 per megawatt hour over a 31-year period. That’s above the average national cost, and the rate will hold only if the big utility company is allowed to use federal . . . Complete story »

Conflict of interest: Officials with turbine tower leases approve wind development

An industrial wind facility is set to launch in Hillsdale County next year, despite significant opposition from local residents and questions. The opposition stems in part from a series of approvals granted by Wheatland Township officials who stand to benefit financially from the construction and operation of wind turbine towers and related facilities. Opponents of the Crescent Wind Energy Center, organized as Concerned Citizen of Wheatland Township, claim the township’s planning commission and board rammed through ordinance modifications and use . . .

Social media proves too real for invasive projects

Big, invasive infrastructure projects have lost the social media battle.  This isn’t new, it happened before the war even started.  There’s no way these projects can ever win the social media battle.  However, that doesn’t stop them from trying.  But, they’re only fooling themselves! Take a look at this silly article in a “renewables” publication.  Oooh… use of NIMBY in the headline and throughout the article.  Name-calling is one of the seven common propaganda devices named decades ago by a . . .

A year later — still haunted

There’s no real reparations that will erase what has been done. The facts are pretty clear in the re-visited article (see link – https://www.capenews.net/falmouth/news/falmouth-resident-shares-lasting-turbine-troubles/article_7211f529-fd23-5dbb-87ab-d6cbdaf3fd47.html. And while the dust has settled over another year, the aftermath continues to leave many of us unsettled. Unable to “get back on track,” angry that justice should come only through debt. Debt beyond money. The debt affecting reputations and community acceptance. If there’s a lesson (a warning) to others out there, from a life lived . . . Complete story »

Progressive idea: municipal renewable-energy utilities

More than a decade ago, Rock Port, a small farming community in northwest Missouri, reportedly became the first U.S. municipality to be powered almost exclusively by renewable energy. Four large wind turbines are connected to the power grid and provide the town’s nearly 1,400 residents with most of the power they need. The turbines produce about 5 megawatts of electricity annually. When the wind isn’t blowing, residents buy power from the grid. But on most days, the turbines generate enough . . . Complete story »

Infrasound from wind turbines is detected at a distance of 40-60 km from wind parks during more than 50% of the measurement days

The Finnish Association for Environmental Health, SYTe, started measuring infrasound from wind turbines at seven different locations in Finland in the first half of April, 2019. According to the results from May–June the infrasound, from wind turbines can be measured at a distance of at least 30-60 km from the wind parks. In Satakunta, Southern and Northern Ostrobotnia, there is infrasound from wind turbines about half of the measurement days or even almost daily. On average, the infrasound from wind . . .

Brown, others say DoD vindicates concerns about wind turbines and military operations

Sen. Harry Brown, R-Onslow, is convinced large wind energy projects, such as the Amazon Wind Farm near Elizabeth City, hinder the military’s ability to conduct low-level flight training missions in North Carolina. He also thinks construction of new wind facilities could hurt the state in a future Base Realignment and Closing process. Brown and others concerned about the compatibility of industrial-scale wind projects and military training say they recently got vindication from the Department of Defense. The director of the . . .

Falmouth’s Governor: Deal Breaker Baker

A story of a town’s hope – hung out to dry … Wind energy is an industry that develops in rural settings. Falmouth Massachusetts was one of these places in 2005. The wind industry’s surrogate state wind energy agency came in, found a location with good wind yield and recommended industrial wind turbines be located at the town’s waste water treatment plant. You see, the remote-ness, the rural-ness, the small town country bumpkin-ness of Falmouth lead the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative to . . . Complete story »
