Impact on Views or Zoning/Planning
Editor's Note: Recently updated, Elizabeth Mann's extensive research on the deceptive measures employed by proponents of industrial wind energy in the UK at both the national and local level should prove quite useful to opponents of wind energy in the UK.
A7 Energy's appeal against the Easington District Council for refusing to grant planning permission with respect to a wind plant consisting of 2 x 2.3MW turbines was dismissed by D. L. Burrows, an inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The principal reason for dismissal was adverse impact the turbines would have on the activities of Shotten airfield.
This report examines the factors underlying the recent increases in electricity prices and the potential impact of these factors on the industry's financial condition. It focuses primarily on cost changes experienced over the past five years and the projected trends in these costs over the next ten years.

Attached are complete land lease and lease options from Zilkha, Enron, Green Light, and Ecogen wind developers. Also attached is a summary written by Save Upstate NY that describes some aspects that all four have in common. Subsequent to the posting of these items an example of a PPM Energy lease for the Flatrock Wind Farm (i.e. Tug Hill) was added.
During the past 15 months, this Blue Ribbon Panel has identified myriad costs and benefits related to development of offshore wind turbine facilities in New Jersey’s coastal waters. Because of the lack of basic scientific data, however, this Panel cannot characterize the appropriateness of offshore wind development for this state’s coastal waters. Nonetheless, this Panel has found that New Jersey is facing a serious and growing energy crisis that must be addressed. New Jersey must assume a leadership role and set an example of responsible development of energy technologies that are reliable, renewable, and low-or zero-emission.
The Poldermodel approach is consensus-based. The poldermodel is a model on which Dutch society and politics are based. The Poldermodel ensures that different planning systems are used for every ministry. There is a need to draw all planning systems together into one system. This is done by means of communication and negotiation. The Poldermodel intends to involve as many (relevant) stakeholders as possible to give every person the possibility to plan developments on the scarce land.
