Why is Ontario addicted to wind power?

Every time I am interviewed by the media, or speak at a public meeting, I am asked: Why is Ontario continuing to push ahead with its program of industrial-scale wind turbines and wind power, when all the facts seem to argue against it? I don’t know. I don’t understand why Ontario’s Liberal government never did a cost-benefit analysis, or why it has ignored the admonitions of two auditors general about impacts and costs, or why it seems unable, or unwilling, . . .

Legal fight over shuttered Falmouth turbines drags on

FALMOUTH – A Hatchville-based group, seeking reconsideration of a court judgment that permanently shut down two town-owned wind turbines, does not have the standing needed to file a motion to intervene and has made its move too late, according to an attorney representing a neighbor of one of the turbines. Both sides filed their positions in Barnstable Superior Court late this week. At issue is a June 20 ruling by Barnstable Superior Court Judge Cornelius Moriarty to uphold a decision by . . .

End the wind production tax credit

Congress is focused on making our backward tax code into something that encourages our nation’s instinct for creativity and innovation. As we look at all the wasteful and unnecessary tax breaks that are holding us back, I have a nomination: At the top of the list should be ending the quarter-century-old wind production tax credit now – not two years from now. This giveaway to wind developers was meant to end in 1999 but has been extended by Congress ten different . . .

And he expects to refile an updated petition for the project within a month, according to Lowell Select Board Chairman Richard Pion.

The PUC refused to reconsider the decision, saying that . . .

Wind farms will change rural culture, landscape

So what is all the buzz about these big wind turbines? If you have not heard about this issue, it’s time to listen. I am deeply concerned that a huge project that will change the entire landscape and culture of our communities could be happening with very little awareness or input from residents. Miami and Cass County Commissioners have already voted to approve setbacks – the distance a 600-foot industrial wind turbine could be placed from a home or residence. On . . .

It would be capable of ferrying about 4,000 megawatts of power. The project is one of five developed . . .
