Brodie turbines benefit others while we suffer

The Berkshire Wind Power Cooperative plans to install two new additional turbines on Brodie Mountain. To me this new wind project is an illustration of the extreme lack of understanding many people have of the wind industry and wind turbines themselves. For example, their electricity is unreliable and most available when least needed – in spring and fall. Adding more and bigger turbines callously disregards the complaints made by those in the vicinity of the first Brodie project. We are told . . . Complete story »

Comments about a wind energy project

Two years ago, I received an invitation from Apex Clean Energy to an Emerson West open house. The evening was to include a short presentation as well as an opportunity to meet members of the Apex project development team and to ask questions. On the front of that invitation was a nice rural scene: green field, red barn, clear sky – not a wind turbine in sight! There were two speakers at this presentation. Speaker No. 1 stated the life of . . . Complete story »

Reader is opposed to Cat Creek Energy Project

I am opposed to the Cat Creek Energy, LLC (CCE) alternate energy project. I have talked to many local residents and land owners of Elmore County and a few things have become clear to me. # 1. The planned wind farm and solar project off Highway 20 that CCE wants to construct on Camas Prairie near the Cat Creek Summit scenic viewpoint will adversely affect all land owners, future tourism and land values in Elmore County, the Camas Prairie, the . . .

‘Yes’ on windmill ordinance

The issue of alternate energy sources is a challenge in today’s society and economy. Issues to consider include the history of pollution caused by decades of fossil fuel consumption, impact of secondary issues on the environment such as erosion of soil and waterways, impact of the collective forms of energy on communities, effects on Maine tourism, and the implicit long-term goals of keeping the lakes, ponds and mountains beautiful for years to come. The towns of Woodstock and Greenwood have . . . Complete story »

The turbine timebomb

As we swelter in this fine summer, I wonder if any readers know that we could all be in grave danger from the dreaded “Tickenden Zeitbomben”. Is it a fearsome Scottish cleg? Is it the fabled Loch Ness Monster? No, but it could be much closer to you than you think and potentially extremely dangerous as we are importing more to this country than ever before. In fact, our once beautiful countryside is now littered with them so they are . . . Complete story »

From Holy Grail to wasteland

For over a decade, policy-makers in the Western Isles have seen ‘renewable energy’ as the key to achieving the Holy Grail of Hebridean aspiration. That is, long-term economic abundance and cash flow, thereby lifting the island population away from perceived poverty and inequalities vis-a-vis the mainland. Onshore wind farms and an inter-connector (in island parlance ‘the interconnector’) are seen as the drivers towards that aspiration, irrespective of all other considerations. This, despite the view of Scottish Natural Heritage that the . . . Complete story »

Vacationland or wind-tower land?

Vacationland or wind-tower land, we can’t have both. Soon the voters of Greenwood will be called on to settle this issue. The wind energy company from Texas and now Canada are after all the government subsidy money they can get their hands on. With this money, they hope to erect as many turbines as possible to transmit the electric power to southern New England. The mountains, residents and camp owners of Greenwood are all being sacrificed for out-of-state power, and . . . Complete story »

Turbines would ruin rural vistas

I invite everyone to visit the wind turbines in Van Wert and Paulding counties and even taller turbines in Hardin county. I did, and then came home to think. Do we want this to happen in our own county and surrounding area? Promotional material from the above wind farms states: “The home-grown power will be another crop from the fertile land of northwestern Ohio.” They don’t tell us how unsightly they are, the nuisance they create and the land they . . .

Potential wind ordinance referendum doesn’t help residents

Recently, I’ve seen several people write in to say they think the wind issue should have a yes or no vote. If they had been to any of the meetings in the past 18 months, they would know this is not a yes or no vote on whether we want wind or not. Wind is a designated land use in the state of Michigan, but each township or county can zone it to fit their needs. This referendum, for which . . . Complete story »

Financial concerns over wind turbine project

I’ll confine my comments to the recent article “Turbine talks make gust in county” as it relates to financial statements made regarding the local benefits of this project. Some very large amounts were tossed in making it look as though it’s a huge windfall to Jasper County and it’s residents. My question is which of these amounts are truly relevant to the majority of residents who will have to put up with turbine presence for generations to come? Which of . . . Complete story »
