‘Don’t Blow It Texas’ meets to discuss recent developments

“There was a large group of landowners here in Val Verde that are concerned about the impacts of that and their respective property rights. This is a very strong state for private property rights, and we belong to that line of thinking, and we believe we can do whatever we can on our individual properties, as long as it doesn’t harm our neighbors,” he added.

Don’t be first to approve tall turbines

As Villenova and Hanover decide whether to allow 599 foot wind turbines in the rustic, scenic hills of Chautauqua County, will they become the first to be the worst? So far, there are no 599-foot wind turbines on land in the U.S. RES, Invenergy, Apex, NextEra, etc. — are all trying to make it to 599 feet. They have targeted Western New York.

Opposition to wind farms escalating

Opposition to wind farms in Texas is escalating as more projects are proposed close to where people live. More and more Texans find that giant turbines aren’t good neighbors. Now, no one is trying to eliminate renewable energy. What we – and many of your neighbors – are calling for is an honest discussion about the true costs of subsidizing wind energy.

Scott Wolf: R.I.‘s ‘Wild West’ of renewable energy

To end the current destructive “Wild West” approach to renewable energy siting in Rhode Island, we believe that the state should immediately place a moratorium on state incentives for utility-scale renewable-energy development ...until the state establishes economic incentives to encourage the siting of utility-scale renewable energy on developed and disturbed locations, such as landfills, brownfields, rooftops, parking lot canopies, and gravel banks, and disincentives to prevent the continued loss of our forests and prime agricultural soils.

Opposition to wind farm project expressed

As part of its review process to determine whether to approve an application to allow construction of wind turbines on 32,000 acres of public land in Nevada adjacent to the California border just west of Searchlight, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) conducted a series of scoping meetings to allow public input. At a recent meeting in Las Vegas a half dozen speakers largely expressed support for renewable energy but not on the proposed site.

Wind farm firm scraps plan for relay stations in Norfolk countryside

The energy firm behind one of the world’s biggest offshore wind farms has scrapped plans to build large electricity plants in the Norfolk countryside. Vattenfall, which wants to build two wind farms around 50 kilometres off the east Norfolk coast, said today it will use more advanced technology which will mean a cable corridor it hopes to dig across the Norfolk countryside will be narrower. It also means no relay stations will be needed.

Corporate giant AGL has stepped in to address community concerns about a proposed Willatook wind farm

The residents called on AGL to “fix” existing problems at Macarthur, such as deteriorating roads, before launching into a new project. Resident Jacinta Coffey said the area was “becoming a dumping ground for wind energy” and it was "unfair” to the community with more than 240 wind turbines to be built in Hawkesdale and surrounding areas.

Wind farm developer wants to meet with OC officials over opposition

“Ocean City supports clean, unseen energy,” the mayor’s letter reads. “What that means is that we would like the turbines to be constructed at least 26 miles offshore, rather than the 12.9 to 17 miles as one developer is proposing. Our leadership is interested in both promoting green energy and providing job opportunities, but is also our duty as the Mayor and Council to preserve all that we have at stake, including the natural beauty of the beaches and waters in and adjacent to Ocean City.
