Selection of offshore wind providers delayed one month

BOSTON – Faced with a Monday deadline to select a project that can deliver between 400 and 800 megawatts of offshore wind energy to the Bay State, utility companies working with the state instead have extended their deadline a month, until May 23. In a letter to the Department of Public Utilities on Monday, the team evaluating the bids for a long-term offshore wind energy generation contract said it needs the extra 30 days but still expects to submit a negotiated . . .

Political rivals strike deal on wind power tax

Oklahoma House leaders have reached a deal with Democrats for a new tax on wind power. The agreement came after a morning of closed-door meetings on both sides of the aisle. Republicans began the day hoping to hear another measure that would have capped wind industry tax credits, but they abandoned those efforts by the end of business Thursday. As a new tax, the proposal requires at least 76 votes in the House and 36 in the Senate to pass. . . . Complete story »

Offaly in danger of becoming the wind farm capital of Europe

Responding to the decision by Offaly County Council to grant planning permission for a wind farm at Moanvane, current sitting Laois TD and candidate for Laois-Offaly at the next General Election, Sinn Féin’s Brian Stanley said, “this is a bad decision for Walsh Island and the surrounding area and will have a huge impact on local residents.” “By any standards this is a large-scale development incorporating 12 giant turbines over 500 feet in height. Each turbine is to generate 4 . . . Complete story »

Angst over transmission lines for wind farms

Concern is mounting about the impact of several power transmission lines from new and planned wind farms in the south-west. Scores of residents from the Mortlake and Noorat areas will meet again at Noorat on Thursday to express concern that the scale of 51 kilometre-long transmission line built from the Salt Creek wind farm at Woorndoo, north of Mortlake, to Terang was too large. Member for Polwarth Richard Riordan will address the 7.30pm meeting at the Kolora-Noorat Football Netball Club . . . Complete story »

Maine needs zones free of windmills, power lines

GLENBURN – Since first hiking into the Maine woods in 1965 as a forester and photographer, I note huge changes in our visual landscape, a key asset for quality of life and tourism. Wind farms and power transmission contribute to the visual degradation, and more is coming. In 1983, my son and I slept overnight in the old Barren Mountain fire tower on the Appalachian Trail. At midnight I peered out the window into a starlit sky, extending in all directions . . . Complete story »

Power cuts plague Santa Cruz

SANTA CRUZ, St Elizabeth – Patrons at the popular Eviction Bar in Santa Cruz eagerly leaned forward on their stools. In what had been a pulsating first 25 minutes, Manchester City – on the brink of securing the English Premier League football title – had just gone 2-0 ahead of hosts Tottenham Hotspurs. The football was all the more enthralling since Manchester City had been forced to endure three straight defeats in all competitions, prior to their trip to Tottenham. Then, with expectations . . .

“Fools Gold, the taxpayer scam called wind energy”

I have read in several papers (including today’s Argus) Bart Pfankuch’s article entitled “Wind Farm Surge draws vocal opposition”. Although written April 2, this article has been everywhere and is still making the rounds over 2 weeks later. I wonder why. Then I heard SDPUC Commissioner Gary Hanson on the radio talking about the same thing. And they were both using the same talking points; “The surge in wind energy in South Dakota was akin to a gold rush”. My . . . Complete story »

Council bill would put more wind turbines on NYC rooftops

The City Council will consider a bill Monday to standardize wind-turbine installation on rooftops as part of a suite of green legislation wending its way through the chamber. Currently, anyone who wants a turbine must apply for a special permit from the Department of Buildings, which is notorious for bureaucracy. “As anyone who’s dealt with [the department] knows, even the most garden-variety projects can often ensnare you in endless strands of red tape,” Councilman Costa Constantinides, a Queens Democrat and . . .

‘Big Wind’ is moving into South Dakota

“Big Wind” has set their sights on northeastern South Dakota. They have stealthily contacted local landowners, offering money for the rights to their property. Some landowners have accepted the easy money. However, the majority of land leased to wind developers, is land where the landowner does not reside. Those landowners (‘participators’) will not be subjected to the danger, irritation, and home value loss a turbine and transmission lines erected on that property bring to the people who live next to . . .
