Big Wind Companies

Helen Schwiesow Parker, PhD, LCP (Chilmark, Mass.) 3/13/12 In what may well be the biggest defeat for Big Wind around the world in over a decade, the US Senate voted today not to attach the “non-germane” Stabenow amendment #1812 to the Transportation Bill. Dead in the water! Done (for now). And likely done for quite awhile. Most “in the know” predict that the Transportation Bill is likely the last legislation for the year that will have bipartisan support. The Production Tax Credits (PTC’s) for wind have expired three times in their 20-year history, and been reinstated each time, but this time we are so much closer to a critical mass of the electorate having learned the truth about Big Wind—it doesn’t work. It doesn’t reduce carbon emissions; it doesn’t reduce fossil fuel use. And without adequate setbacks, infrasound from turbines makes people sick. Up against an army of lobbyists on Capitol Hill, tens of thousands of impassioned citizens around the country, with little but truth on our side, stayed apprised of the moment-to-moment specifics throughout the past week, and our voices were heard. First Big Wind presented the Bennet Amendment #1709, then another version, the Bennet/Moran Amendment #1790. Then replaced these with another with new language offered by Senator Cantwell (D-WA). Eventually Senators Reid and McConnell chose to present the Stabenow Amendment #1812 to the full Senate. #1812 would not only have extended the Production Tax Credit for Big Wind, but would also have resurrected the 1603 credit—the worst of all possibilities. Big Wind needed 60 votes to attach their self-serving agenda to the BigDaddy S.1813 Surface Transportation Bill. Instead, they got only 49 votes, less than a majority, a benchmark of sorts. That’s $5-$20 billion in debt (plus interest) our kids won’t have to pay to the Chinese PLUS billions in savings coming from lower energy costs for the entire economy. (Is it too much to assume this means Cape Wind is finally off the chart?) In all events, it is really amazing, almost worthy of miracle status. For those so inclined, say a prayer of thanks tonight! http://www.windtur binesyndrome.com/w ind-turbine-syndro me/current-news-ar ticles/  (Mar 14, 2012 | post #1)

The Truth About Wind Farms

filed: February 16, 2012 • Illinois, U.S. Wind power industry hits setback Credit: By Julie Wernau, Tribune staff reporter, Chicago Tribune, www.chicagotribune .com 16 February 2012 ~~ Congress today failed to extend the production tax credit for wind power, essentially knocking the wind out of the wind power industry. The extension of the production tax credit for wind power was excluded from the payroll tax bill in Congress. Failure to extend the production tax credit — which provides an income tax credit of 2.2 cents/kilowatt-hou r for the production of electricity from wind turbines — is expected to result in layoffs of 37,000 people employed nationally by the industry and to stall or significantly push back wind generation projects around the country. http://www.wind-wa tch.org/news/2012/ 02/16/wind-power-i ndustry-hits-setba ck/  (Feb 17, 2012 | post #542)

Carbon Motors Naysayer

Different subject, but what happened to the wind farm the APC and Commissioners had planned for the county? This would be a good question to ask the people running for office. Sure has been quiet!  (Feb 16, 2012 | post #15)

Wind Farm Coming to Rush and Henry Counties

This thread was started a year ago in Fayette County. Good luck Rush County, you will need it. So far, Nextera Energy has been quiet about installing 120 turbines in Posey and Fairview townships. Nordex is following the high power electric lines. So if you can see the power lines, you are in the zone. Places like Raleigh to west of Falmouth or 600 North. http://www.topix.n et/forum/city/conn ersville-in/TPOB6D A05T6S4TT1F  (Feb 2, 2012 | post #11)

Wind Farm Coming to Rush and Henry Counties

This was in the Connersville and New Castle papers, Rushville failed to post it. Nordex’s planned development area stretches from just south of Interstate 70 in Henry County to about Road 600 North in Rush County. From west to east, it goes from Ind. 3 to Straughn. Under current plans, about 23 wind turbines would be placed in Henry County, and about 52 would be placed in Rush County. Pending the approval of government agencies, Nordex hopes to begin construction on the wind farm next year. The foundations could be placed in the spring of 2013, and the turbines could be delivered in the summer of 2013, Decker said on Wednesday. http://www.thecour iertimes.com/main. asp?Search=1&A rticleID=269898 &SectionID=23 &SubSectionID= 45&S=1  (Feb 2, 2012 | post #10)

Also windy, if you don't own enough property to have your own turbine and you own land next to a turbine and the wind company wants to pay you to have a turbine next to you, don't sign, because you are signing your life away, as in a gag order. Down the road you decide that you don't like the noise, vibration and shadow flicker AND you are getting paid via a contract, in blunt terms you are s..t out of luck! Get an attorney before you sign anything. Also the wind company in Rush and Henry counties is a German company with an American base.  (Feb 1, 2012 | post #7)
