Where’s the state help?

This past February at a Washington, DC, hearing of the House Natural Resources Committee, Governor Baker said, “Well, sometimes, we just screw up the way we actually implement it…” referring to the state’s implementation role in the town’s turbine project debacle. Falmouth Board of Selectmen chairman (at the time) Susan L. Moran’s response was that she believed the state and federal government should support Falmouth with the financial consequences of the wind turbine project. Article 14 of this fall’s annual . . .

Wind turbine blades are not recyclable

In you editorial of September 18 (“A candidate with a plan”), the focus was on the job Canada was doing on renewable energy. While I agree we need more renewable energy, no one points out the fact that the gigantic blades of the wind turbines are not recyclable. An article published in the August 7, 2019 edition of the Cowboy State Daily in Wyoming had an article that talked about the blades had to be placed in the landfill. The . . . Complete story »

On the topic of wind farms

I am a member of The Cooke County Coalition For Property Rights. We are against EDP Renewables Wildcat Creek Wind Farm being built in Cooke County. We have debunked EDP’s claim that property values will not be affected. Just ask a local real estate agent. We have debunked EDP’s claims of no health side effects. Just ask the people who live near a windmill in Muenster. We have debunked EDP’s claim that our schools and community will gain from the . . . Complete story »

Wind farms and money

As a state legislator, I had a sincere respect for the committee process. Every issue that we would address would have two committee hearings, meetings were open to the public and we would hear both sides of the issue. You could be sure the truth was told or the credibility of the person would be damaged. Most of the information on the Prevailing Wind Park project was in area papers. We were told in 2015 Tripp school would receive $1,000 . . . Complete story »

Why no action on wind turbine complaints?

Following on from the planning issues and auditing problems in the South Cambs district council there is another issu where the council is failing the community. Both South Cambs and Huntingdon district council have, jointly, signed a statement that they are refusing to accept further complaints about excessive noise cause by the Cotton Farm wind farm turbines. The turbines are located in the Huntingdon districts area but are next to the South Cambs village of Graveley. The noise generated by . . . Complete story »

New wind turbines deserve a close look

In response to Shawn Soper’s article “World’s Largest Offshore Wind Turbine Now Planned Off Ocean City,” I thought I would take the time to make Ocean City residents aware of some of the issues with offshore wind, and these newly announced turbines in particular. As an Ocean City business person, as with most business owners, my economic and personal life centers around established Ocean City industries – tourism and local fishing. Earlier this year, the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association sent a . . . Complete story »

We live in the Harwood community and are currently working with the neighborhood and Dan’s Mountain Solar Company to have a solar farm placed on a lot adjacent to ours. A representative of the solar company advised us about the project. Through speaking with him and doing some research of our own, . . . Complete story »

Look to Germany as a warning

Proponents of “clean energy” in the United States often cite Germany’s wind industry as a model for the renewable energy industry. Recent statistics from Germany tell a different story. The expansion of wind power in Germany fell by more than 80 percent in 2019 in response to growing public resistance and multiple lawsuits filed against the industry by conservation groups and local communities protesting the visual pollution, environmental impacts and health hazards of siting turbines close to residential areas.

The infamous wind turbines

What a sad saga for this town. Now requiring a request for qualifications, RFQ instead of the earlier request for proposal, RFP, attempted by our town hall officials. The timeline seems never-ending for this project that began somewhere around 2004. I expect that our officials plan to relocate these turbines to an out-of-town leased site that will end up costing we taxpayers even more than has already been wasted to date. Gearbox failures are a rather common experience with this . . . Complete story »

Hopkinton town board candidate wants to protect town from wind turbines

As fall approaches, so too does the opportunity to elect our local town officials with whom we will entrust our future health, safety, and well-being. We rely on their honesty and integrity to act in the best interest of our community as a whole, ensuring that the will of the majority guides the Town Council’s approach to long-term planning and short-term goals. I will be the first to admit that over the years I had become content with the idea . . . Complete story »
