Longtime farmer Tom Warren raised the issue at a commissioners meeting late last month, viewing it as a public safety matter in light of the tornado that swept through the county . . .

Wind turbine blade icing danger cited in fine

The operator of several wind turbines near Georgia received a $7,500 for operating the turbines in 2016 during weather that could have led ice to form on the turbines’ blades. The turbines’ owner won’t contest the fine, a representative said. The case establishes important precedent that lets turbine operators know what they’re expected to do during certain types of bad weather, said Andy Raubvogel, an attorney with Burlington law firm Dunkiel Saunders Elliott Raubvogel & Hand, representing Georgia Mountain Community . . .

Maine coastal town’s leaders vote to oppose offshore wind project

The St. George Select Board voted Monday to oppose an offshore wind project taking shape about 12 miles away, standing with local fishermen who say the project and its transmission cable would harm their livelihoods. The unanimous vote follows a recommendation made by an advisory committee created last month by the five-person Select Board to weigh the impact the Maine Aqua Ventus offshore wind project would have on the local community. “I think it’s a good idea we sever ourselves . . .

Deepwater struggles to assuage concerns of fishermen

Commercial fishermen peppered representatives of Deepwater Wind this week with concerns, questions and “what-if” scenarios about the planned offshore wind farm’s feared impacts on marine life and the men who work the waters for a living. The company, which is planning to spend more than $700 million to construct 15 wind turbines in the ocean 30 miles southeast of Montauk, walked a standing-room-only audience at the East Hampton Town Trustees meeting on Monday night through the coming permitting and presumed . . .

GOP tax bills aim to derail the green-power gravy train

Commentators, as well as congressional Democrats, have criticized the Republican tax bill for being rushed through the House and Senate without significant debate. While that complaint – plus the fact that, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s most recent analysis, the bill could increase the federal deficit by $1 trillion or more – has merit, the new tax bill should bring some much-needed sanity to federal energy policy, and in particular to the lavish subsidies being given to wind and solar energy . . .

Few Danes complain about wind turbines: group

“I don’t think a low number of complaints shows that people are happy,” said Henriette Vendelbo, chairperson with the Landsforeningen Naboer til Kæmpevindmøller (National Society for Neighbours of Wind Turbines) association. “I think it’s more due to tiredness. Normally, people have fought for several years before the turbines are erected. And events in other municipalities have shown that it is near hopeless to keep campaigning once the windmills are up,” Vendelbo said. Complete story »

Wind farm plans in works while ordinance is ironed out; EDF Renewable has 4,000 acres under lease, agent says

DeKALB – The DeKalb County Board might not have made up its mind yet about wind farms yet, but that’s not stopping EDF Renewable Energy from making plans in the county. The alternative energy company, which has been making arrangements to lease farmland across the county, has testing towers up in two locations in South Grove Township, and operates two wind farms elsewhere in Illinois, also is setting up shop in the DeKalb County business community.
