As the election draws closer, things seem more desperate and chaotic. In Ohio, the “Repeal HB6” crowd is pushing this complicated issue with great urgency, hoping the Republican-controlled legislature will panic and repeal the law without a replacement. On another front, “Operation Grant” comprised of alleged Republicans (Never Trumpers) are pushing their support for the … Continue reading HB6, BigWind and Who? Sarah’s back in the saddle
As BigWind and SolarSkillets(burn birds) spread across our state, we must become educated about their origins, their realities, their TRUE impacts on OUR land, OUR environments, OUR homes. Don't let your neighbors bury their heads in the sand over this.

So, why not just use batteries to store BigWind energy? Battery storage is simply not dense enough. Read below and you will see the limitations. It does not make sense. We need energy DENSE sources that are efficient, dispatchable and inexpensive (nuclear/gas/coal/hydro) for our homes and businesses. Batteries, though rechargeable, are not green. Visit a … Continue reading Will Batteries be the savior for BigWind? No and they are NOT green
More than 10,000 of the existing 28,000 turbines need to be decommissioned!! Can you imagine multiple industrial wind energy sites like this? When each one consumes tens of thousands of acres? What are we doing to our landscape, our neighbors, our countryside. Oh, but wait, we forgot, BigWind claims THEY will decommission and take care of … Continue reading What do we do with Toxic BigWind trash??
Whew! What a week! As the election nears, “conspiracy theories” don’t look so conspiratorial anymore. They look like the real thing. With this in mind, we thought we might share a few “conspiracy theories” that have been raised in connection with industrial wind. Rigged! Let’s start with “media bias”. On Friday, Senator Bill Seitz decided … Continue reading Ohio media still wearing Halloween mask supporting BigWind
Yet, another, study showing this truth. The wind may be free, but converting it to energy is anything BUT free. Please see our tabs, at the top of the page, for other examples. Hover over the tab, for links to other articles that confirm this truth... States which offered substantial taxpayer support for green energy … Continue reading ‘Green Energy’ States have HIGHER electricity rates
The next time someone tells you they support BigWind subsidies because fossil fuels receive them, too, remember this information. BigWind loves to tell the public that they only want what is fair- an equal opportunity. Is BigWind really being treated, equally? Is it fair when BigWind is being subsidized over 52 times more than the more … Continue reading BigWind is subsidized >52x more than fossil fuels. Fair????
It was gratifying to read that while Governor Kasich is out and about during this campaign season, he is defending the new property line setbacks which will become effective September 14th. The Columbus Dispatch reports the Governor “defended the increased setback restrictions on wind turbines by saying, “Private property rights are important. People choose to … Continue reading Ohio governor Kasich defends record on green issues
We invite you to look at the photos at http://www.cashton.com/North_Wind_Turbine_Const-DM-CS-SB-2-reduced-in-size.pdf . These pictures are wonderful views of wind “farmers” planting 45 tons of rebar and 630 yards of concrete to grow one wind turbine. How 'green' is this? It is certain nothing else will ever “grow” in this field. Can you imagine the quality of the field … Continue reading How ‘green’ is BigWind’s 45 tons of concrete and 630 yards of concrete PER turbine?
How can 'green' = poverty? The wind is free! The sun is free! True, those 'fuels' are free, but their conversion into electricity is extremely expensive- and, ironically, requires the use of fossil fuels for manufacturing. Changes in the world's carbon emissions are negligible, yet, the world economies have spent HUNDREDS of BILLIONS installing wind … Continue reading How can ‘green’ = poverty?
Wow, paid to produce absolutely nothing - and- during the windiest weather to boot! BigWind has the best marketing team in the world; unfortunately, at the taxpayers' expense... Onshore wind farms are being paid £30 million a year to sit idle during the windiest weather. The payments are made because the cables which transmit power from … Continue reading Is it fair to pay BigWind to NOT spin- during windy weather?!
The Honda plant in Russels Point, Ohio, has garnered attention this week for installing 2 wind turbines that are "expected" to produce 10% of the electrical energy needed for the auto plant. Truly, unlikely to occur, but we do wonder how long it will take them to pay for themselves….particularly, after reading this article... One … Continue reading How long will it take for Honda’s turbines to pay for themselves?
