Gone with the wind

Wind farms? What a joke. There is nothing farm-like or agricultural about 500- to 600-foot industrial wind towers. Imagine our beautiful Coteau and Glacial Lakes region covered by hundreds of monstrosities. Deuel alone has approximately 320 proposed wind towers with more projects in the works. Codington and Grant have about as many. To put these into perspective, the water tower in the SE edge of Watertown is approximately 150 feet tall, and not spinning, or creating noise, infrasound, or shadow . . . Complete story »

Apex continues to generate suspicion

On Sept. 10, Paul Williamson of Apex appeared before the town board in Yates, proud to announce that finally, after more than four years, a preliminary project layout for the Lighthouse Wind project would be presented on Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. Unbelievably, it was also announced that this great public unveiling would not be in Yates or Somerset but at the Ridgeway fire hall on Route 104 in Medina. A subsequent letter was presented to the Yates and Somerset . . . Complete story »

Carpetbaggers and their turbines

You have read here previously of how sPower refused to cancel my wind lease agreement even after learning their agents had used misrepresentation to get me to sign it. Now comes the story that a great many other people are having problems with them as well. Through the second half of this year, a large number of the leases they hold in Seneca County are expiring from their “preconstruction” phases and should require the landowner to re-sign the agreement if . . .

Money led county to poor decision

The money and effort that Scout Clean Energy put into persuading landowners to lease their land has finally paid off. Unfortunately, the land lease contracts were mostly signed by landowners that either don’t live in Jay County, or are of retirement age. In either case, they will not have to live with the long-term effects of their choice to sell out. Scout’s attorney said that the resistance they experienced in Jay County is unprecedented, that a tax abatement has never . . . Complete story »

I was raised in Jasper County. I still live in Jasper County and farm with my husband who was also born and raised in Jasper County. Our son and daughter-in-law also farm and reside in Jasper County. All of us are concerned citizens and landowners in Jasper County. I would like to offer this rebuttal to Mr. Steve Hurley’s opinion piece in the Saturday, Sept. 5, 2018 edition of the Rensselaer Republican. Just because you are in the minority on . . .

Wind company towers come down in Parishville, Hopkinton; community remains cautious until all leases canceled

On Friday, September 7, Iberdrola’s met towers began to come down. The first tower to be removed was the one located in Parishville at the intersection of the Newton Road and CR 56 (also known as the Allens Falls Road). The 5-person crew (from Iowa, by the way – not even a New York-based company) then went to the met tower located on State Route 72 in Hopkinton and did some preliminary work there before moving to the met tower on . . .

Opinions vary in county wind turbine debate

In response to the Letter to the Editor published in the September 5, 2018 edition, I feel compelled to also submit a letter expressing the opinion of my family.

My family was visited several times by representatives of the wind companies. My family and I thoroughly reviewed the proposed . . . Complete story »

We’re deep in the wind wow-zone, but hold on a sec

I have asked the Minister for Planning, Richard Wynne, to put on hold all wind farm permits in south-west Victoria. I have done this not to inhibit the state’s responsibility to support renewable energy but to enable a comprehensive review of the impacts of wind farms in this region to date. And there are many wind farms, with many more to come to achieve the state’s Renewable Energy Target of 40 per cent by 2025. I want to understand the . . . Complete story »
