Let us remind our legislators of their decisions to shorten the Ohio BigWind setbacks….This turbine fire required 8 fire engines and grew to 5 acres. What if a field of crops was beneath this turbine? What if the setback was significantly shortened and a home was close? Kids? There is absolutely NO logic to shortening our setbacks, but there is a LOT of greed…BigWind wants more tax $$$$$$….

A wind turbine caught fire, causing a grass fire Wednesday in western Oklahoma…

The sparks caused a grass fire that was contained after growing to approximately five acres. Eight fire engines responded to the scene and were able to contain the fire.
