‘You won’t understand it until you live it’

To all Madison County tax paying residents: My name is Tanya Lamb. I am 50 years old. I have lived at my residence for 26 years, my husband for 37 years. We, at the very second you read this, live in the footprint of industrial wind. My husband loves to boast “I’ve planted every tree but two” on our once beautiful property. He started planning his future on our property in 1982, when he planted rows of evergreens that now . . . Complete story »

Green windmills: disaster for birds and bats

In response to the letter of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Richard Schrader (“Cuomo’s Right About Limiting Gas Pipelines,” Nov 1): The first law broken by ideologues is the law of unintended consequences. The NRDC supports the couple dozen or so wind turbines on mountain tops in and around Sanford, N.Y. This is even though three bat species have just been placed on the New York state’s “special concern” list, even though the most recent Cornell University study concluded that . . . Complete story »

Price check

Falmouth continues the process of preparing its wind turbines for sale. The November 1 edition of The Enterprise included three very different estimates for the cost of dismantling the turbines—$1,250,000 for each of Falmouth’s two turbines. Then a quick Google search to confirm about the two wind farms Mr. Cool cited: about $410,000 per turbine for each of the 18 turbines at Palmer’s Creek Wind Farm and about $532,000 per turbine for each of the 134 turbines at Nobles Wind . . .

Concerned about wind farm development

For the past 20 years, I have divided my life between East Point, P.E.I. and a small, rural town in upstate New York. I am invested in both communities. I call both communities home. Like many Americans, I was drawn to P.E.I. by the beauty of its land and sea. I am grateful for a community that respects and cares for its natural resources. I came, also, to escape the pipelines, fracking, power plants and wind turbines. My small rural . . . Complete story »

‘Ludicrous’ speed

Over a week ago I spoke before the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, expressing my concerns over the county’s “hurry up” handling of the proposed Terra-Gen wind farm project to be located on Monument and Bear River ridges, south of Scotia (Mailbox, Oct. 31). The county has allowed Terra-Gen to take several shortcuts on this proposed project, including skipping the standard two-year environmental study, to mention only one. Now the planning department has announced that the Final Environmental Impact Report . . . Complete story »

County needs own energy, not Monument Ridge plan

Humboldt County desperately needs energy independence as illustrated by the numerous power shutoffs of late. However, the proposed wind power generation plan for Monument Ridge is not the way to go for numerous reasons. First, it would direct power to the PG&E grid via Bridgeville, the very source of the shut downs impacting Humboldt, and not provide any new power to this county. The environmental disaster that would result from this plan (Pacific flyway bird kills, loss of carbon storing . . . Complete story »

Questions that need to be answered on offshore wind

“Floating wind farms to bring £230 million and thousands of Scots jobs to economy,” claim Renewable UK and Scottish Renewables, adding that £33.6 billion worth of economic activity could be delivered, generated over the next 30 years (“Thousands of Scots jobs can be created by floating wind farms”, The Herald, November 1). Seventeen thousand jobs could be created or supported. Since the wind turbine hardware is manufactured in and imported from the Continent and, more especially, from China, where its . . .

Climate article didn’t mention important statistics

Your article on wind energy – “Powerhouse” (Oct. 27) – failed to mention two important statistics. According to “Subsidy Tracker,” Invenergy has received subsidies of $41,223,979 from 10 state/local grants and $531,915,559 from nine federal grants since 2010. Sound sustainable?

Understanding Article 14 is imperative

While awaiting Mr. Suso’s expanded wind project disposition report, Town Meeting members (Falmouth taxpayers) should try and gain some context to the $2.5 million appropriation request. Two Minnesota wind farms (Nobles Wind Farm and Palmer’s Creek Wind Farm), having comparably sized and dimensional turbines as Falmouth, submitted utility documents addressing decommissioning costs [internet available] to the requisite regulatory authorities. Projected in 2019 dollars, the cost is estimated at $410,000 to $532,000 per turbine (storage analysis not included). Costs were admittedly . . . Complete story »

Whether if Halloween was just around the corner or not, I think we could still call the corporation that’s owned by the Energy Capital Partners “Terror-Gen”, as it’s a good representation of the havoc that the company’s 600-foot-tall bird, bat and soil decapitating wind turbines will have on one of Humboldt’s and the West Coast’s most diverse ecological transects, while opening up other ridges to future development and increased wildfire risk (Mailbox, Oct. 24). The proposed project stretches over 30 . . . Complete story »
