Do you wonder if it is really true that BigWind could impact your quality of life? Aren’t most noise and infrasound claims ‘overstated’ and ‘exaggerated’?? Well, for those of us in Ohio, we don’t have to look far for the truth. Van Wert citizens made it VERY clear to local and state politicians that BigWind HAS impacted their quality of life.
And, just a little farther, over the Indiana line, BigWind is thriving…..or is it? Tipton county, approximately 1 hour North of Indianapolis, has planted many of the nuisances. Yes, they are nuisances. Just click on the link, at the bottom, of this post. You will learn about individuals who say it sounds like planes overhead. Others claim it has divided families and their communities. Even a county commissioner expresses regret over the choice to allow the turbines to be built.
And, finally, isn’t it always about the $? The power of the mighty dollar. What do the residents say about all of the ‘tax benefits’ now?“ The county received a large sum of $ upfront, but now they are only paid property taxes on each turbine. That $ is, by no means, a ‘windfall’. Property values? DOWN, too. How would you like it if your home, where Americans place a majority of their asset wealth, was Devalued because of these industrial machines….“
