Well water drinkers in Chatham-Kent asking PCs to investigate sediment findings

Some people using well water in Chatham-Kent are calling on the Provincial Conservative government to follow through on an election promise to investigate what’s causing sediment to enter their drinking water. An advocacy group believes there are close to 80 families currently having to filter sediment from water wells on their property after it was dislodged into their drinking source during the construction of wind turbines. “A lot of the community is quite disappointed, quite frustrated.

Water well activists continue push for health hazard investigation

With the North Kent Wind project already operational, water well activists are continuing their push for a health hazard investigation. About 20 residents were in attendance for an open house on Tuesday at Country View Golf Course. Like similar events held in the past, project officials maintained the construction and operation of the 34-turbine wind farm has had no impact on wells, with those in the crowd disputing that. The wind project developers include Samsung Renewable Energy and Pattern Energy. . . . Complete story »

Wind turbines creating division in northern Missouri

OSBORN, Mo. – For almost two years, Kim Tindel has had an unobstructed view of several large wind turbines from her property in northwest Missouri. She’s sick of them. And, she thinks, sick from them. “It makes you dizzy,” Tindel said. “We live with our blinds pulled now.” Tindel said from the highest point on her property, she can see all 97 turbines that went online near Osborn in 2016, to create enough renewable energy for KCP&L to power 60,000 homes. . . .

Something doesn’t quite measure up about Waterford wind farm’s turbines

For two years, Sean Harris was of the opinion that a wind-farm developer had given him the runaround. He and his family were experiencing problems with the neighbouring wind farm in Ballyduff, Co Waterford. There was the noise, incessant at times. There was the siting of at least one of the 11 turbines, which he was convinced was closer to his boundary than stipulated in the planning permission. And there was something about the size of the damn things. The . . . Complete story »

FALMOUTH – Two town-owned wind turbines have not operated since a Barnstable Superior Court judge in June 2017 ordered that the pair never spin again at their current wastewater treatment plant location on Blacksmith Road.

Rep. Russell on Hinton wind turbine construction

OKLAHOMA CITY – NextEra Energy is currently putting up wind turbines out in southwest Canadian County, as part of the company’s Minco IV wind farm. The company submitted its original plans for this project in 2016. Those plans were OK’d by the FAA as presenting ‘no hazard’ to aviation. But NextEra didn’t build those, instead submitting revised plans to the FAA this year in March. The 2018 plans have not yet been given a ‘no hazard’ designation. But this summer, . . .

OCC addresses controversial wind turbine construction

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission heard concerns Tuesday about a wind farm near the town of Hinton.

It states a wind developer must obtain what’s called a “no hazard” determination for each turbine from the Federal Aviation Administration or . . . Complete story »

Carpetbaggers and their turbines

Through the second half of this year, a large number of the leases they hold in Seneca County are expiring from their “preconstruction” phases and should require the landowner to re-sign the agreement if . . .
