You go!!! You are either green or not it does not matter where you live. Your neighbors should be proud of you and follow your lead.

Some where in Northern Indiana a man dug two oil wells on his property, and sold off the oil. If you can have an oil well, I don't know why you couldn't have a windmill

They should be glad that someone is stepping up and trying to go green. It would not distract me, simply because it would be so high up in the air. And I don't think the value of homes would go down. This is just a group of people that has to complain about something.

If he owns a house in a subdivision that has restrictions I don't believe he should be able to put up what would be seen as an eyesore to his neighbors. If he owned 5 acres or 1 or 2 or 50 out in the country side where there are no restrictions, have at it.
I'm not sure where this guy lives at, but if he wanted to put up windmill he should have thought about it before buying his house where it is IF it is in a subdivision. If not and there are no restrictions, then NOBODY has anything they can do about it and should not be able to do anything about it regardless.
In Floyd County the zoning is pathetic. You can drive past a 1/2 million dollar brick ranch home with a trailer right next door. The county mandates all parking lots be paved, but I drive to a hug church every sunday that has had a large gravel parking area for years now. No consistency, no real zoning plan, and no class is my feeling regarding our zoning in the county. Blind leading the blind and it seems to be the fat rat always getting the cheese.

Why is it so wrong for people to try and get off the grid? Dont you realize that would make our world a better place? I think it is wonderful that there are people trying to better our world. Bravo!!! It has to start somewhere. The human race has fell into this material idea and what & how they look, meaning thats all that matters to them. Oh my may it look bad to their company that comes over for their dinner parties and they may have to EXPLAIN? We need more people out there going green!!!:)

The green movement was created to put your money into the pockets of others. In twenty years, they'll be laughing at those who took that bait hook, line, and sinker.
