AWEA and BigWind spent $$$ on lobbyists to persuade Ohio senators and representatives to approve a setback amendment in the budget bill. This morning, the house said NO and removed the amendment. Hallelujah! Thank you to those who contacted the legislature to help us protect our homes and property. This amendment would have SIGNIFICANTLY shortened the distance between an industrial wind turbine and a neighboring home. It would have been unprecedented because all other setbacks are measured from a property line, not a home. BigWind will be back with their own bill, as a separate piece of legislation. At least, this time, it won’t be so secretive. This amendment was the brainchild of BigWind’s best friend, Senator Cliff Hite. It’s time to take a hike, Senator Hite!! Does anyone want his job????…….
