The excitement amongst Danish alternative energy producers was tangible late Wednesday night as US president uttered the words 'America is addicted to oil' and that something must be done about it.
My suggestion is that our state legislature make a proposal: for the state energy commission to study windmill energy on behalf of the state of Vermont. This study can ascertain the effects, both economic and ecological, of placing larger sized windmill "farms" in a few carefully selected locations, where they can be out of view of the most residents and tourists; to assure both ecological and economic responsibility.
Three wind farms, including one of the biggest in the country, are being planned for Waikato.
Yass Valley Councillors have pledged their support to local residents opposing the proposed Conroy's Gap wind farm.
Parker said he was in favor of wind power and while he acknowledged it would sometimes be a hard sell to get the turbines on to some of the state's ridgelines, Parker said he was committed to increasing the number of wind power generators.
The plans for the 100-metre high turbines were originally turned down on a number of grounds, including the impact on the surrounding landscape and local communities.
I supported a wind farm development on the Ridge, choosing to investigate other developers rather than sign an easement contract with Invenergy/Summit Ridge Energy Corp. After extensive research, I have changed my position.
Sheffield - Selectmen and representatives of UPC Vermont Wind met behind closed doors for about three hours last night to discuss a contract between the town and the wind developer.
It is not true that wind only blows in Vermont's top 12 poorest towns (Sheffield, Lowell, East Haven, Searsburg ...). Waterbury has ridges!
The belief that Green Choice would reduce the amount of oil and other fuels LIPA must purchase for energy -- and thereby reduce costs the more it's used -- appears to be widespread. The reality is somewhat different.
It struck me that the wind farm is scheduled to be operating by 2008, only two years hence. I work on deadlines. I guessed, then, that all during the public hearing process, and the permit-application process, and the permission-to-build process, these guys will be building the project, anyway.
"Quixotic" is an appropriate term for Victoria's energy policy. Ostensibly targeted at greenhouse gas emissions, it is also, confusingly, designed to promote an inefficient windmill industry. The outcome can be nothing but trivial in terms of emission reductions but serious in terms of cost to Victoria.
Hornby | Officials continue to scrutinize plans for a 40-turbine wind farm in the town of Hornby region, with a special zoning committee meeting set to take place there at 6:30 p.m. today.
Unison, with Tasmanian-based firm Roaring 40s, was given resource consent by the Hastings District Council's hearings committee for 16 turbines in August last year - a decision which was almost immediately appealed by Hawke's Bay historian Patrick Parsons' Outstanding Natural Landscapes Protection Society.
OUTSTANDING views from five of Scotland's best-loved peaks will be ruined if controversial plans for a major wind farm in the Highlands go ahead, claims a leading environmental charity.
The turbines would wipe out a fifth of the UK population of these birds within a year, according to the new assessment.
Meteorological towers to test wind speed and direction have been installed in the towns of Walton, Tompkins and Meredith to determine whether those sites would be suitable for wind turbines, officials said Wednesday.
WIND turbines could be built in all parts of Huntingdonshire, according to a new strategy being considered by the district council.
Proponents of generating more electricity from self- sustaining resources like wind, landfill gases and water are promising big things for Wisconsin's economy if they get their way.
The consensus among the lawmakers seems to be that wind developers' proposals for wind turbines are moving too quickly to the Public Service Board for approval before communities have a chance to fully explore what they would mean. This is a discussion that is overdue at the Statehouse. Lawmakers should call for a time-out on the permitting of commercial wind farms. The people of Vermont deserve a chance to understand the impact of 400-foot-tall turbines on the ridgelines -- before they are built.
