Why does BigWind ‘sell’ their ‘farms’ every 6 yrs?

Why does BigWind 'sell' their 'farms' every 5-7 years? What? You don't know anything about this? Right, it is kept quiet...you don't read about this in the paper. You need to go to the courthouse and you will learn that they quietly 'sell' their 'farms', like a used car, to another company. This cycle repeats … Continue reading Why does BigWind ‘sell’ their ‘farms’ every 6 yrs?

Ohio smiles while BigWind frowns on LeedCo decision

The Ohio Power Siting Board issued a conditional certificate providing Icebreaker Windpower, Inc. an opportunity to move forward with the construction of six wind turbines in Lake Erie. LEEDCo is not happy. Of course not, they are never happy unless they are in charge of the bargaining...unless they are the BigDog in the room...unless they are … Continue reading Ohio smiles while BigWind frowns on LeedCo decision

BigWind has been impacted by COVID-19

NOT TRUE!...But they have hoodwinked some Senators. Will they also hoodwink Treasury Secy' Mnuchin? Six U.S. senators, citing the COVID-19 pandemic, have asked for “safe harbor” deadline extensions to assist renewable energy developers to meet construction deadlines and qualify for tax credits. Lisa Linowes, executive director and spokesperson for The WindAction Group, said that is a lot of … Continue reading BigWind has been impacted by COVID-19

BigWind needs MORE stimulus$? Smoke screen!

BigWind, is again, seeking stimulus $. Various senators have submitted a letter of request to Treasury Secy' Mnuchin. Such would qualify as the 13th federal subsidy extension for wind power, dating back to 1992. Yet back in 1986, amid California’s wind subsidies, a representative of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) stated: “The U.S. wind … Continue reading BigWind needs MORE stimulus$? Smoke screen!

BigWind Ohio causes Death of American symbol

A majestic American eagle dies a horrific death in NW Ohio. This bird represents our history as an independent country.  Eagles are unique to North America.  They are strong, majestic, bold, and faithful. They are a symbol of strength and determination. They are survivors, until faced with a foreign invader, aka BigWind.  These monstrosities represent the … Continue reading BigWind Ohio causes Death of American symbol

Could this flying piece of turbine kill your kid?

Dear Ohio Power Siting Board and Ohio legislators, WAKE UP! Ohio wind turbine setbacks should NOT be shortened. BigWind does NOT belong next to schools and playgrounds! Setbacks should be increased. BigWind spins well over 100 mph and when parts come loose (or ice), they fly fast and far....  A DAMAGED wind turbine halted a … Continue reading Could this flying piece of turbine kill your kid?

BigWind will “educate” BirdBrains? Nope

I will apologize now, because there is nothing funny about this topic; however, there is something very funny about this Sierra Club quote below, "We are finding out that wind turbines are not as harmful to birds because they become educated" ?!? The birds? They become educated? No, they become DEAD.  Turbines are catastrophic for … Continue reading BigWind will “educate” BirdBrains? Nope

BigWind is NOT Green, but ‘Wildlife in a Blender’ RED

Is the dirty TRUTH about BigWind beginning to spread? The Audubon society, well respected for caring for birds, has been blatantly biased in FAVOR of BigWind, aka Bird Blenders, but here we read about a professor sharing the TRUTH to a room of them. Bats are VITAL to our species! Why? Just read this excerpt from … Continue reading BigWind is NOT Green, but ‘Wildlife in a Blender’ RED

Ohio has a BigWin against (another) BigWind

Hallelujiah! Congratulations to the people of Northern Ohio, who have tirelessly fought against BigWind for a very long time. There are still other projects they continue to fight, but this small victory is needed.  In particular, we recognize the wisdom exhibited by their county commissioners to revoke the Alternative Energy Zone, as these are magnets for … Continue reading Ohio has a BigWin against (another) BigWind

“Noncompetitive” BigWind can mock the taxpayer, again

The US taxpayer has given the BigWindustry an amazing Christmas bonus now for almost 40 years. Congress is filled with wimps and liars. The President, although he has many accomplishments, should be ashamed that this deal was allowed to continue. The renewable industry mocks us, laughs at us, attacks us, and then we give them … Continue reading “Noncompetitive” BigWind can mock the taxpayer, again

BigWind seeks to ‘silence’ Ohioans

"What Susan Munroe and the Ohio Chamber of Commerce have in common is that they both represent a big business intent on transforming entire communities from agricultural/residential to heavy industrial without the consent of the local citizens. No other form of development transforms such large portions of local areas, 250 square miles and tens of … Continue reading BigWind seeks to ‘silence’ Ohioans

BigWind WILL die, and then new problems begin

We have blogged about this before.  In order to build a turbine, there are hundred of gallons of oil, toxic chemicals, concrete, steel, etc. that is generated.  Turbines do not last forever and certainly, they do not last anywhere near that of a traditional nuclear or coal facility. What happens then? Recycled? NOPE, well maybe … Continue reading BigWind WILL die, and then new problems begin

Ohio BigWind COLLAPSE halts traffic

Yet another example of WHY current Ohio BigWind setbacks are NOT safe for the public, particularly our schools filled with children. Unfortunately, some politicians prefer to listen to the $$ that BigWind waves (obtained via our taxpayer subsidies), rather than the constituents that reside amongst these industrial monsters..... Roads in the harbor opened again on Friday … Continue reading Ohio BigWind COLLAPSE halts traffic
