‘Don’t Blow It Texas’ meets to discuss recent developments

“There was a large group of landowners here in Val Verde that are concerned about the impacts of that and their respective property rights.

Opposition to wind farms escalating

Opposition to wind farms in Texas is escalating as more projects are proposed close to where people live. More and more Texans find that giant turbines aren’t good neighbors.

Scott Wolf: R.I.‘s ‘Wild West’ of renewable energy

To end the current destructive “Wild West” approach to renewable energy siting in Rhode Island, we believe that the state should immediately place a moratorium on state incentives for utility-scale renewable-energy development ...until the state establishes economic incentives to encourage the siting of utility-scale renewable energy on developed and disturbed locations, such as landfills, brownfields, rooftops, parking lot canopies, and gravel banks, and disincentives to prevent the continued loss of our forests and prime agricultural soils.

Minnesota lawmaker proposes mandate for wind-turbine lighting systems

Bill 3792 would require wind companies to implement radar-activated lighting systems that turn blinking lights atop wind turbines and tall towers on and off, depending on whether aircraft is in the vicinity. These Aircraft Detection Lighting Systems can reduce light pollution by remaining dark most of the time, lighting up only when necessary to serve as beacons.

Wind farm developer wants to meet with OC officials over opposition

“Ocean City supports clean, unseen energy,” the mayor’s letter reads. “What that means is that we would like the turbines to be constructed at least 26 miles offshore, rather than the 12.9 to 17 miles as one developer is proposing. Our leadership is interested in both promoting green energy and providing job opportunities, but is also our duty as the Mayor and Council to preserve all that we have at stake, including the natural beauty of the beaches and waters in and adjacent to Ocean City.
