Borders councillors have opposed plans to build 13 turbines in the region. During a meeting of Scottish Borders Council’s planning committee on Monday, the proposal by Community Windpower to build 45 turbines across the region and nearby Dumfries and Galloway was rejected. However, due to the size of the proposed turbines, the Scottish Government has the final say. Councillors were mainly in agreement regarding the Faw Side wind farm, near Langholm, with Jedburgh councillor Scott Hamilton describing it as a . . . Complete story »

Natural breezes, ‘progress’ and unintended consequences

As a long-time resident of LBI, and someone who has spent the last 62 summers on the Island, I would like to share some of the “progress” our Island has made. And as a mechanical engineer who has spent the last 40 years on mechanical and electrical infrastructure development, including energy efficient technologies and the use of renewables such as wind, solar and geothermal, I feel more than qualified to offer some commentary. So here goes. To understand the desirability . . . Complete story »

Residents against wind turbines ask for resolution

Bosque County Commissioners Court was packed Thursday, Feb. 25 as many Bosque County residents came to speak out against granting tax abatements to prospective wind turbines. “The basic issue we’re talking about on tax abatement is the issue of equity,” said Bosque County resident Doug Kieta. I don’t care if the business comes in but to be honest, I’d rather subsidize Ace Hardware who employs 35… [rest of article available at source] Complete story »

Wyoming Senate pass effort to reduce payments to communities impacted by industrial projects

CASPER, Wyo. – The Wyoming Senate passed legislation on Wednesday which would decrease the amount of assistance provided to counties and municipalities impacted by industrial projects. An example of the type of project that would be impacted by the proposed legislation: the $490 million Cedar Springs Wind Energy Project for which the City of Casper, Natrona County and Converse County all were awarded some funding to cover the cost of impacts to their communities. Under current law, Wyoming’s Industrial Siting Council . . . Complete story »

Wind farm shows up as constant rain storm over Johnston

Maybe you’ve noticed a green radar blob over Johnston on our day-to-day weather graphics. It looks like it’s always raining there. Well, it’s actually called clutter – and it really shouldn’t be there. First, let’s talk a bit about radars themselves. Radars work by sending out short bursts of radio waves in all directions at the speed of light. They strike rain, sleet, snow, even some structures, and terrain. And some of that energy is reflected and sent back to . . . Complete story »

Zoning dies again, safety ordinances planned

PRINCETON – One of the most talked-about and talked-out actions in local government was reversed Tuesday night, as Gibson County Commissioners killed the countywide zoning ordinance by a 2-1 vote, and disbanded the Gibson County Advisory Plan Commission, originally tasked with developing the ordinance.

What about impact of turbine blades?

North Dakota has thousands of unrecyclable fiberglass wind turbine blades that will ultimately be discarded when they become obsolete and/or decommissioned. I propose that each individual who has financially benefited and/or otherwise supports wind power adopt a wind turbine blade which could then be proudly displayed on their property to demonstrate how they care for the environment.

Biden accused of playing politics on Vineyard Wind

When the Trump administration dragged its feet on the environmental permitting of Vineyard Wind, wind energy proponents in Massachusetts and across the country cried foul, claiming politics was driving the process. But now that the Biden administration is in office, the same claim is surfacing as the president quickly moves in the opposite direction. The Responsible Offshore Development Alliance, which advocates for the US fishing industry, on Wednesday released comments it sent to Amanda Lefton, the new head of the . . . Complete story »

Wind farm concerns

Wind farms are popping up across central Illinois to create more clean energy. However, many people aren’t happy about it – and they’re pushing against these farms expanding any further. WCIA spoke with some people in Vermilion County where some people say they’re causing problems. School leaders say the money coming into the district from the wind farms has certainly been a big help, but it’s also creating another problem for some students. The superintendent says they’ll be losing some families . . . Complete story »
