ALEDO - Wind energy is getting more attention in Mercer County. The issue was a topic of discussion at this week's regular Mercer County Board meeting. A Chicago area company is proposing a wind farm in the northern end of the county.
"In order to guarantee reliable electricity supplies when wind farms produce little or no power,e.g. during periods of calm or storm-related shutdowns, traditional power station capacities must be available as a reserve. This means that wind farms can only replace traditional power station capacities to a limited degree."
The state Department of Environment Protection Energy Harvesting grant will be combined with others to build an electricity-generating wind turbine to power the Hazleton City Authority’s water filtration plant, said Thomas Tuffey, director of PennFuture’s Center for Energy, Enterprise and the Environment.
BRATTLEBORO — Gov. James Douglas said Friday that his administration is evaluating whether it makes sense for Vermont to put most of its energy eggs in the baskets held by Hydro-Quebec and Entergy Nuclear, the owner of Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.
Douglas said he was "surprised" when the town of Sheffield, in the Northeast Kingdom, approved a project for 26 windmills along a ridgeline. He said he thinks most Vermonters are aware that even a large number of wind turbines aren't going to replace nuclear or hydroelectric power, which provide about two-thirds of the state's energy.
Hundreds of millions of pounds raised from electricity bills to help develop renewable energy are being diverted to the Treasury, creating a new " stealth tax".

Given these irregularities, it is not at all surprising that the pro votes won. But under fairer circumstances, the count might have been different.

Scotland's countryside is under siege from a £320million scheme to build super-pylons to carry electricity south of the Border. The proposed electricity transmission line would stretch 137 miles from Beauly, near Inverness, to Denny in Stirlingshire.
A group of Grant County landowners has filed a lawsuit seeking to block construction of a Mount Storm area wind-power project.
Committee To Research New Energy Plan NEWPORT CITY VERMONT Northeast Kingdom planners on Thursday reacted to critics and put a draft energy plan endorsing wind power on hold until more research is done.
These examples show that offshore wind technology is advancing so rapidly that sacrificing Nantucket Sound for a project like the one currently being proposed is shortsighted. In the near future, the public could get the same benefits from building an offshore wind plant farther out to sea with far fewer negative impacts, and at the same time avoid being saddled with what may well become an obsolete technology.
JUNEAU WI Judge John Storck on Wednesday in Dodge County Circuit Court Branch II dismissed a petition for review from the village of Brownsville concerning wind turbine placement because it wasn't filed in a timely manner as required by state statute.

Which comes first, a set of guidelines or a specific review? That's the latest question being asked in the saga of a proposed wind farm on Nantucket Sound.
