He [Golisano] said if windmills can be positioned so that they don't impact people negatively, then he supports them.
Two Somerset County green energy projects got a push Wednesday with a chunk of the state’s $8.6 million funding for clean energy.
On Tuesday, March 21, 2006, during the 71st North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference in Columbus, Ohio, the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (IAFWA) will host a full-day workshop entitled "Wind Energy Development and Wildlife Management."
Roger Weaver, owner of three RE/MAX Community Realty offices in Kittitas County, said he testified and challenged the consultant’s study. He said there was “no way a wind farm won’t have a significant impact on residential development in the Kittitas Valley.”
As soon as a few papers are filed and the ground thaws, it looks like Harwich will be getting back into the alternative energy business. Selectmen last week took another step toward the eventual construction of a wind turbine behind the high school on Oak Street.
CRITICS OF PROPOSED US offshore wind farms have recently lauded efforts to develop deep-water offshore wind energy technologies that would allow wind farms to be built far from shore. They suggest that advances in research and development are proceeding at such a rapid pace that thousands of wind turbines could soon be operating off the northeast coast without encroaching on anyone's view or posing any threat to the environment. Clarification about the current state and potential of deep-water offshore wind energy appears timely.
The Kittitas Valley has beautiful views... and many residents are not willing to them give up so that a new 6-thousand acre wind farm can take it's place.
A small request turned into a big deal at Monday's Potter County Commissioners Court meeting.
The Adirondack Park has served as a model for parks and protected areas across the globe. Its economic prospects rest on whether its natural wonders and wild character are assured.
"We must carefully weigh the benefits of scenic attributes versus the limited economic benefits of wind turbines," said Diane Olcott, the chairwoman of the Manchester Village Planning Commission.
OTTAWA, ONTARIO, Jan 10, 2006 Magenn Power Inc. today announced a distribution agreement with Krystal Planet Corporation to market the Magenn Air Rotor System (MARS), an airborne tethered wind generator. This innovative new product will deliver up to 4 kW (kilowatts) of power at a cost per kWh (kilowatt-hour) potentially much lower than conventional wind turbines mounted on towers.
I feel that your paper's endorsement of the wind project is based upon an incomplete understanding of its impact upon the western mountains' nature-based tourism.
The Nantucket Sound region is a fragile marine environment on the active list under consideration for sanctuary status by the federal government. Nantucket Sound exists in the North Atlantic Flyway. It is a habitat to endangered species protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
Common sense says: Calm down. Let's work on securing the 90 percent of the roof over our heads - that is, let's nail down the 90 percent reliable, low-cost energy we need for the future and figure out energy conservation strategies and ways of meeting our 10 percent renewables energy target other than by destroying Vermont's world-renowned ridge lines.
In September, a report by the Government Accountability Office found that the federal government offers minimal oversight in approving wind-power plants. The report urged federal officials to take a more active role in weighing the effect of wind power farms on bird and bat deaths
The chief sponsor, state Sen. Frank Wagner, R-Virginia Beach, describes his draft legislation as a comprehensive blueprint for developing more energy at home -- both traditional sources and futuristic ones -- so Virginia will have reliable supplies for decades to come.
Almost every property in their street, apart from those of the farmers on whose land the turbines are being built, is for sale. "I've watched my husband work all his life to build this home," Mrs Cicero said. "We've never had loans, we've always worked and saved. And now we find everything that we've put in here, it's all worth nothing." The Ciceros had their home valued at $410,000 before the wind farm was taken into account. Afterwards, the estimated value dropped to $270,000. They have not received one offer for their property in two years.
That will make Whole Foods the only Fortune 500 company to purchase renewable energy credits — which subsidize the production of energy from renewable sources such as wind — to offset 100% of its electricity use, says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says.
Existing or proposed wind power projects in northern New England. Excludes locations where wind is being measured but no turbines have been proposed yet.
The unpredictability of wind requires energy suppliers to coordinate backup supplies. For that reason, "free" wind isn't exactly free.
