I think the positives of the wind farms will overcome the negatives.

Well actually I have looked into buying one but unfortunatly I do not own enough land. You cannot tell me there is not enough land for the wind farms when most of the agricultural farms seem to be closing. I would be proud to have one of the windmills in my yard producing electricty for my house, and others if possible. Anyone that pays an electric bill should feel the same way. Who wants to pay more for service connection then what they actually use in electricty. This is ridiculous, I can understand why all the good manufacturing jobs have left the area.

Do the homework !!!These is not small residential wind mills.This is a Foreign Multi national conglomerate who is manipulating small poor communities. This electric is going downstate and the only change for us will be a increase in our electric bills. Studies have shown many adverse health effects,danger to wildlife,decrease in property values. The wind energy is not efficient.The energy can not be stored,when electicity is at its highest demand the wind is not blowing.Gov erment money should be spent more wisely.

These are industrial wind turbines. It's not a "farm" - it's a facility. Ya know that astonishingly tall radio tower on Davis Hill in Fairfield? The one you can see blinking from a hundred miles away? The wind turbines they are planning are half the size. That's about 400-500 feet tall. They are massive. Sorry to dredge up the turbine debate, but I had to say that.
