Killer wind

Bob Stern, president of Save LBI, said it best: “We are not against wind; we just want it done right!” We all have been reading about the issues regarding offshore LBI wind projects, both pro and con. Every one of the mayors on LBI has written strong letters opposing the near-shore construction of wind farms, primarily if the structures are visible from our pristine beaches. Fishermen are against the development due to habitat changes. As an example, look at the . . . Complete story »

Letter another example of a lack on integrity

To the Douglass Township Board in reply to the letter you sent to my address through the Patriots for Montcalm. I am not part of an anti-renewable energy group, nor is anyone in this township part of that group. I am part of a township coalition working toward protecting Douglass township from the hazards of the big fans. Please stop portraying us as the bad guys while you play victim. You are not the victims. You are the perpetrators of . . . Complete story »

Eagle killing is big news, but where’s wind farm outrage?

Recently the depravity of a person who shot an eagle made headlines in our state. What explains the lack of headlines about the depravity of building a windfarm near the Lake Michigan flyway in Sheboygan County? Why the silence about how the tips of those huge windmill propellers, moving at speeds of 125 to 180 mph in a brisk wind, treat passing birds like golf balls on a driving range? Is it just that a single American eagle is a . . . Complete story »

Plagued by Hoosac Wind noise in Clarksburg

Trouble sleeping yet again – noise from the Hoosac Wind Power Project. In the morning, I tried calling the complaint line to no avail. In the past, Hoosac Wind owner Iberdrola Renewables would tell me what the conditions were at that time, but the last two times there was no call back. Eventually, I was offered a “noise machine” with recordings of sounds, which only added more sound and no help. Next offer was improvements – windows and insulation – which required signing . . .

Cursory debate over Sallachy

Having watched live the North Planning Application Committee meeting of April 26, during which planning permission was granted for a wind farm at Sallachy, I am questioning why I submitted an objection, as objections were minimally referred to and appeared to be given little consideration, writes Alice Clutterbuck. The previous application, thrown out by Scottish Ministers in 2015 – deemed unsuitable for this wildland area – was “cut, pasted and moulded” into shape, resubmitted and approved by councillors in approximately . . .

Sallachy Wind Farm objections casually dismissed

The shocking North Planning Applications Committee meeting of April 26 granted a wind farm on designated wildland at Sallachy, despite many concerning objections from highly reputable organisations such as NatureScot, Mountaineering Scotland, the John Muir Trust, and SSE Renewables. These were either casually dismissed or ignored. Watching the meeting live, I was horrified at the lack of debate or due consideration, other than a nod to Rogart Community Council’s objection to the massive 560 per cent increase in HGV traffic . . .

Industrial wind turbines … the corruption of zoning

Industrializing rural counties with commercial wind turbines will deconstruct many aspects of country life, none so obvious as zoning. Zoning regulation exists to protect us from development infringing on adjacent property rights and values, as well as to preserve the essential nature of our communities by creating zones of like kind areas of development. Effective zoning promotes orderly development, harmonious with the nature of the community as a whole. To pretend industrial turbines are harmonious with agricultural farming in rural . . .

Time to put wind issue to rest

I just finished the story on the “study” put together by the Upjohn Institute. You could say it could be construed as an advertisement for Apex Clean Energy instead of study. Anyone find it interesting that the author of this study has no dogs in the fight even though he was paid to write this study with funding by Apex? Sounds similar to lease holders being on township boards and not recusing themselves from decisions on turbine zoning issues even . . . Complete story »

Industrial wind turbines

Like many of us, I have lived most of my life in Northwest Ohio, although most of my time so far was in Seneca County. I enjoyed the small town and rural environment that it has to offer, but as life happened, I enlisted in the United States Navy Nuclear Power Program in 2010. I kept up with friends and family back home from several states away, but towards the final years of my service, one issue was standing out . . . Complete story »
