CRAB ORCHARD WIND FARM: Clean energy for our children or taxpayer burden for our children?

Apex has been very secretive about this project, and I do not trust them. Add to this the fact that several of their wind farms are having legal problems, and I do not believe this is the right company for this project. The Tennessee Legislature should put a moratorium in place on wind farms until they can update their wind farm zoning plans. In particular the set back distances for homes near wind farms needs to be determined for residents safety.

Energy project would build new reservoir near Mountain Home

The scope of the project is excessive, said Wendi Combs, a homeowner on Anderson Ranch Reservoir who opposes the project. Combs said that’s especially true of the wind farm, which is proposed to run from near Lime Creek, which flows into the eastern side of the reservoir, all the way to past Little Camus Reservoir and Anderson Dam, occupying a total of 23,000 acres.

Coming to an Apex?

 Bruce Owens, simply offered, “ I don’t want it,” he said of the Wind Project. “I’ve seen too many when I was in Indiana. And those were on open farmland with not many people around. Not like this.” Yet, it was interesting to note that, well before the 8 P.M. finishing time, the Apex meeting room had only a few people present while the Coalition’s room became jam-packed to voice their concerns and listen to the presentations.

Idea of wind farm blows Charlotte resident away

"Wind turbines sound like these innocuous ...They've left a trail of destruction, heartache, (and they) ruin towns, and I see why. If they really cared about the residents, they wouldn't sneak in and have you sign a confidentiality contract so that you can't tell your neighbor they're about to ruin your property, cause you so much stress from the noise, the strobe, the shadow flickering ... and the health effects. All around the world, there's a mass movement to stop it, and I think you've been duped," said Riggle.

Vermont facing environmental crisis

Construction might be slowed by treating wind and solar like other industrial uses, but it will occur in a deliberate and not a “gold rush” fashion. What’s the hurry? Congress has now renewed developer tax credits so that the deadline for building has been extended for five years.
