Another side to wind power issue

Facts matter – all of the facts. We were astonished to read the editorial published in the Bethel Citizen on Aug. 2 in favor of wind development in Greenwood. It’s fine that they are in favor of wind development – everyone is entitled to their own opinion – however, the idea that the group opposed to wind development is “wringing its hands and crying foul” completely ignores the true issues presented by the development of wind turbines in a populated area. Is it . . . Complete story »

Protect small towns

The main aim of the government’s affordable housing policy is to relieve the problem of homelessness. Yet the government is prepared to risk the viability of the small town of Hawkesdale, where affordable housing is in abundance, by approving a wind farm just 1 km from the town. The plan is to install a wind farm consisting of 28 turbines. These turbines, with flashing red lights for aviation purposes, are 180 metres tall, three times the height of the West . . .

Wind energy concerns

There is much to be concerned about with wind energy facility development in the south-west region of Victoria and the construction of the transmission lines for grid connection integral to the multiple projects established, approved or proposed. Developers are targeting a swathe of rural landscapes from near Geelong through to Mortlake (a “hot Spot” according to a DWELP representative), on to north of Warrnambool, wrapping around Koroit/Port Fairy and beyond. Do you know DWELP requires no permit for wind energy . . . Complete story »

Crookwell II wind farm turbines threaten safety

I have a major concern with the threat to the safety of the public who use Goulburn Road that is posed by at least three of the turbines in the Crookwell II wind farm. A near-neighbour of the project, the community representatives of the Community Consultative Committee, the council’s acting general manager and I all raised this safety concern with the Department of Planning and Environment. The department asked its compliance officer to look into the matter and he has . . . Complete story »

Aren’t 143 wind turbines enough?

To Holly Stacy and Shayne Thomas, Over the past few months, you have been presented with the following verified information: 1. The total revenue coming into Seneca County from all sources associated with Republic Wind and Seneca Wind projects combined is less than 45 cents per day per person in the county. 2. You, the commissioners, have full authority over whether a wind turbine project receives a tax break. 3. The history of wind projects in Ohio is that they . . . Complete story »

Column was off base

We are responding to a column from the Center for Rural Affairs that was printed recently in The Bethel Citizen (July 26). It was titled “Are property values affected by wind farms?” The organization, based in Nebraska, is a nonprofit corporation aiding rural concerns in predominantly agricultural landscapes. The column didn’t specifically address other land uses. According to the column, rural land is unaffected in value by the presence of massive wind turbines. The term “rural land” was broadly used. . . . Complete story »

Residents can save their mountains

How often do people read an article about a wind power project in which the term “wind farm” is used? When most people think of a farm, they picture open fields and pastures where the hard-working owners practice good stewardship of the land to make it more productive. On the contrary, a “wind farm” only harvests one crop, wind, which it has not cultivated or improved and only destroys land which has produced clear water, forest products, wildlife habitat and . . .

No benefits from a wind farm

The Greenwood wind tower vote will be at the Legion hall at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6. A “yes” vote will pass ordinance changes to eliminate the chance for 600-foot towers. It is imperative that those in favor of the changes vote to offset votes by those who are already, or hoping to, profit from a wind farm. If voters have any doubts about the downside of 600-foot high towers or a close-by wind farm, they should do their own . . . Complete story »

Wind project is a menace

I am entirely against the Strauss wind energy project or any other wind energy project. America in general and California in particular would not need additional energy if all legal and illegal immigration were stopped and non-citizens sent home. The slaughter of birds by wind turbines is scandalous, and is not acceptable just because the federal and state governments allow such slaughter to continue. Birds cannot comprehend blade tips moving at rotary speeds of up to 400 mph. The killing . . . Complete story »

Keep new wind turbine developments safe distance from residents

I’m originally from Marshall, went to St. John’s and then joined the U.S. Navy. Marshall gave me a sense of home. SJU gave me a sense of humanity and inquiry. The USN gave me a sense of loyalty and a desire to protect those unprotected. I live in Massachusetts, but have always kept tabs on the “goings-on” in Marshall and Lyon County over the years. The June 2017 Independent Editorial (Proposed wind farms need to be scrutinized) is spot on. . . . Complete story »
