Illinois clean energy transition excludes key constituents in energy justice equation, study argues

Illinois has made transitioning to clean energy a major priority in recent years with the passage of the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) in 2016 and the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA) in 2021. Both pieces of legislation prioritize an equitable transition, aiming to avoid and address historical wrongdoings associated with environmental injustice.

Idaho clean energy project tanked in US Congress

Idaho’s US Representative Mike Simpson (R) took home a political win Wednesday by blocking a clean energy project from moving forward in the Magic Valley. He joined Idaho Governor Brad Little (R) in spearheading legislative resistance to the Lava Ridge Windmill Project, a proposed wind farm that would generate an estimated 700 jobs and reduce the Gem State’s carbon emissions. Simpson added language to the Fiscal Year 2025 funding package that could bar the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) . . . Complete story »

Eastern Carroll County residents resolute in blocking proposed Nimbus wind facility

Caroline Rogers stands beneath a large elm tree this morning on a pasture southeast of Green Forest in Carroll County. She gestures toward a craggy mountain ridge in the distance. “Around here, everyone has springs or wells, or they truck in water or have water catchment,” she said. “So if during the construction – if they pierce our spring or they divert our spring – we could lose our water.” Rogers, the founder of Stop Wind Farms AR, refers to collateral damage . . .

Oppose Powys pylon plans now before it is too late

Having recently attended an excellent public meeting regarding the proposed wind farm at Nant Mithel in the Radnor Forest I feel that I now have a much better understanding of this major proposal for mid Wales. The sheer scale of the wind farms proposed are extraordinary – 31 huge turbines at this site using 211 acres of hard standing and up to 100,000 trees to be felled. Then a further 34 turbines at the Bryn Gilwern and Aberedw sites. This . . . Complete story »

We’ve been going through the 2023 Annual Compliance Report for Kaban wind farm in FNQ, just published. The number of bird species surveyed on the site since 2018 has dropped markedly. The sheer number of bird species observed in 2018 was huge: 85 species! But by 2023, 1 year after Kaban wind farm became operational, the . . . Complete story »
