AMC videos project route's visual impact

Holmes said the proposed line would abut their property. "This is my stand," he said. "If you don't stand up for what you believe in, where are we going?" Holmes said three real estate agents have informed him that "I couldn't get half what the property's worth just because of the threat of Northern Pass."

Ocotillo Wind Energy Facility -- I am a resident

“Our desert home is not really a home any longer, it is just a place to fight wind turbine syndrome, since the turbines crank out profits for huge investment companies and CEO's get big bonuses while the uninformed public is forced to subsidize and allow production tax credits for a wind industry that could care less about renewable energy.  Profit is the name of the game here.”

Deal struck to sell NH wind farm power to Mass.

Though Iberdrola Renewables hasn’t filed an application for the project yet with the state’s Site Evaluation Committee, the company has signed a 15-year agreement to sell power to a group of Massachusetts utilities. The agreement will benefit Massachusetts’ Renewable Energy Portfolio and its electricity customers, though there are questions about its value to New Hampshire.

Industrial wind not just an eyesore, it's an issue on many fronts

Residents of the Newfound Region living around the Groton Wind Project now live with red flashing lights at night, loud roaring of industrial engines whenever the blades are spinning (day or night), shadow flicker from the blades for hours at a time during various parts of the day, the whooshing of the blades as they spin, and the low frequency vibrations that are not audible but are felt within the body.

Supervisors approve work plan for renewable energy

Those who opposed the work plan were residents of East County who say that renewable energy projects in the mountains and desert will harm their health and be eyesores to the residents of those communities. ..."What you’re doing here is wrong; you’re endangering our lives, not to mention our property value. It’s too close; it’s way too close. Please, have a little mercy.”

Cape Vincent officials air concerns over recent BP Wind visual impact survey

BP failed to include all residents in a recent visual impact survey for the proposed Cape Vincent wind project, leaving out women in particular, according to town officials. In a recent letter to the state Public Service Commission, town officials said "many residents of the town of Cape Vincent did not receive surveys, particularly women."

Chamber's incomprehensible support for wind project

The Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Deepwater Wind project. Chamber President Laurie White criticized the opponents of this overly expensive and ill-advised offshore wind turbine proposal. Her chamber's position is incomprehensible, because the project will do nothing for any of its members, excluding Deepwater Wind and National Grid, except increase their electricity rates.

Pursuing energy alternatives does not require accepting Northern Pass

New Hampshire's natural beauty is one of our region's treasures, but that description does not come close to explaining what our natural resources mean to the Granite State. They are essential to our high quality of life, which helps attract talented people and new businesses to our state. ...Like our New England neighbors, New Hampshire is working hard to reduce harmful fossil fuel emissions in order to clear the air and views of our great vistas. Why would we then sacrifice those views to miles and miles of towers?

Many oppose Mass Audubon turbine plans

C. Gilman of Dennis wrote to Prescott, “As a birder with ties to Cornell University and other ornithology organizations worldwide, I am shocked at the position that you have taken in support of the industrial turbine proposed to be erected at the Wellfleet Bay Sanctuary. It is inconceivable to me that you and [Mass. Audubon] would endorse erection of an industrial turbine to dominate this pristine landscape and to disrupt the natural environment.

NVDA committee explores industrial wind impacts

Proximity to industrial wind turbines is making people ill, and the state's program to increase the use of renewable energy sources is a "sham." That's the message a committee exploring the impacts of industrial wind projects heard ...The committee was formed by Northeastern Vermont Development Association following NVDA's July 2012 recommendation that all industrial wind development be suspended for three years until more is known about its impact on local communities.

Oppose wind turbines on Jack's Mountain

The sharply peaked ridgelines of Jacks and Stone are far too narrow for the towers. Not mentioned in the Daily News article is that the construction of the towers and access roads will require removal of a significant portion of the mountain top, perhaps as much as 100 feet (or more) of elevation in some places. That is not a typo - imagine our ridges with 100 feet blasted off the top: environmental destruction on a huge scale.

Don't believe claims about wind power

Much of what used to be one of the most beautiful areas in New York has been turned into a sprawling industrial wind factory. Many of my friends' homes have been rendered virtually worthless. Let's be real. Would you buy and move your family into a home with towers that are 430-plus feet tall, with 7-ton blades spinning overhead, only hundreds of feet from your home?

The devil went down to Orangeville… Selling out our town...

As this letter is being written, people are being assaulted with massive amounts of construction noise and diesel fumes. Complaints from citizens are scoffed at by company and town government alike. Country roads are disintegrating because they are not meant to take the abuse of commercial trucks loaded with thousands of tons of industrial wind turbines, blades, nacelles, cement and stone. The Devil laughs ...
