Wind farms proposal is concerning

A word of caution for the residents concerning the proposed wind industrial park, I’m from Dekalb County Missouri currently working in the Beatrice area. Nextera energy blighted our county 2 years ago with 97 of these massive turbines, the closest is 1 mi. From my house and I deal with noise, vibration, flashing red lights on 3 sides all night long, plus never again will I enjoy a sunrise out my kitchen window without 5 turbines (that’s 15 giant blades) . . .

Wind turbine leaseholders should consider impacts on rural habitat

As most of all of you know, we in Orleans County are facing a deforestation crisis. When you travel in Orleans and the surrounding two counties have you noticed the industrialization of much of our rural landscape? We have growing industrial solar projects, growing industrial dairy farms and now some people dream of industrial bird-killing, 600-foot wind turbines in someone else’s back yard. I spent some time a few days ago speaking to a man who knew the fathers and . . . Complete story »

Unintended consequences

I attended the Seneca County commissioner’s meeting Tuesday and read the following statement: I am really disappointed to see the commissioners continue to ignore how devastating the wind turbine debate has been in our rural communities. The debate has turned neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend and even has come between family members. The debate is heartbreaking and is ripping out the hearts of our citizens. You continue to keep the AEZ (alternative energy zone) in place that will only . . . Complete story »

Gadfly on wind

Recently, TiffinOhio.net posted a story on a hit piece written by a top-level pro-industry group. It attacked a non-politician local citizen for his work in pointing out to our county commissioners the reasons why the proposed wind projects are not a good fit for Seneca County. Somehow the writer of the piece (who is in the Washington, D.C., area) seems to think he knows what is best for our county from a place that is 400 miles away in distance . . . Complete story »

The high cost of being a ‘Good Neighbor’ to Big Wind

As representatives from “Big Wind” companies in our area go door to door, consider the following before signing a lease on the hood of your car. • “Good Neighbor Agreement” is a wind lease which allows the developer to place the turbines closer to occupied structures and property lines than current Ohio regulation allows. Typically, the GNA will pay a leaseholder $500 per year after the project is operational. The lease is permanent, whether the turbines are installed or not. . . . Complete story »

Big problems in wind permitting

I am a day care provider living in the footprint of the proposed Freeborn Wind project. I’ve had day care in my home over 20 years and love my job. I am among the nearly 80 percent signing a petition against the project on the Minnesota side. There has been and still remains problems and rules not followed. There has been admitted lying and trespassing. There has been a lack of decommissioning the plan, the administrative law judge recommendations being . . . Complete story »

What is next and what can I do?

If you have been following the highly contentious wind turbine projects, you will know there is so much happening at such a rapid rate that it is nearly impossible to keep up with the statuses of both of the proposed projects in Seneca County. I have had people tell me that they are voting “no” on the wind turbine projects on the November ballot because they are against them. Unfortunately, there is no such vote. I have had people ask . . . Complete story »

Wind power and warming

Two papers published Oct. 4 in the journals Joule and Environmental Research Letters by Harvard University researchers find that the transition to wind or solar power would require five to 20 times more land then previously thought and, if such large wind farms were built, it would warm average surface temperatures in the continental United States by 0.4 degrees. Question 6 locks us into 50 percent reliance on energy sources that create this dubious environmental impact. We don’t know what . . . Complete story »

Wind issue is deciding factor for Southwood

A vote for Jim Fulwider is a vote for wind farms. Many of my neighbors have regularly attended commissioners’ meetings for over a year and a half now. They have provided Mr. Fulwider with a large amount of evidence which shows that wind farms have affected the health and safety of children. He has been given the Vermillion County Illinois School Superintendent William C. Mulvaney’s letter stating that his students suffered headaches and lack of sleep from living next to . . .

Lack of communication or transparency

In a recent Enterprise article written by Brad Cole [September 21, page 6], Falmouth Building Commissioner Palmer reported that he had been informed by Town Manager Suso that an assessment is underway to examine other locations for the future operation of Wind 2. At the February 12, 2018, meeting, the board of selectmen directed Mr. Suso to contract an engineering consultant to provide re-use alternatives for both turbine towers. Yet, Mr. Suso’s comment to Mr. Palmer implies that the scope . . . Complete story »
