Residents Christ Fillip Jr., Mary Rose Krupa and Kenneth Drake attended many of the wind-farm meetings and were disappointed with the outcome. “This County Board is concerned with only one thing — dollars,” said Fillip, who lives in Leaf River.
“Turbines can offer a small contribution to the energy gap, however due to their randomly intermittent generating capability, as seen in November with the cold spell and high pressure over the UK, the windmills stood still unlike the price of gas.”
TRENTON -- Building electricity-producing windmills off the New Jersey coast could be costly, witnesses testified Tuesday as they debated the benefits of such a project during a hearing before a blue ribbon panel.
Those of us who live here are given lip service at these "informational meetings" when in point of fact we really have no true representation.

The technology is expensive, but Vermonters involved in the project say there's good reason to move ahead with it.
The company behind a controversial proposed wind farm used misleading figures about its potential impact on global warming, the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has ruled.
There's more to determining the value of wind power than knowing which way the wind blows -- or even how hard. MIT researchers studying winds off the Northeast coast have found that estimating the potential environmental benefits from wind and other renewables requires a detailed understanding of the dynamics of both renewable resources and conventional power generation. Data show that wind-energy facilities would generate far more electricity in winter, because that's when winds are strongest. But the need for electricity is greatest in summer, when air conditioners are going full blast.
Other environmentalists are opposed to the wind farm because they feel 400-foot turbines along the ridge line between Gore and Pete Gay mountains will shatter the view. Both the Adirondack Council and the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks are against the project. "It wouldn't be a big producer of electricity, but would have an enormous impact on the environment and scenic beauty of the park," Adirondack Council's John Sheehan said.
"Bodies such as Scottish Natural Heritage, RSPB, Scottish Ramblers, Western Isles Health Board, SEPA and Greenpeace have also publicly stated their concern and objection to the world's largest onshore wind-farm proposal."
The lack of a protection plan was a concern expressed by the members of the zoning board of appeals before they voted to approve the wind-farm on Tuesday night, 4-1.
"Most people have made up their minds and I don't think people are that easily bribed. It's not an awful lot of money."
