UPPER THUMB – Local counties, municipalities and school districts will be able to hold on to disputed wind turbine tax revenue following recent action by NextEra Energy Resources.

Apex can’t buy love

The citizens’ battle against Apex’s industrial wind turbines scored another victory last week: The two Yates candidates who oppose Apex’s Lighthouse Wind project won handily over the one pro-wind candidate in the Republican primary. It is yet another sign that all the monies coming from Apex in an attempt to buy community approval here have yet to yield any results for them. Free hot dogs, fireworks and county fair sponsorships cannot disguise an unpopular project. Residents here are educated on . . .

Karnataka tariff change upsets investors

The Karnataka state electricity regulator has reduced the feed-in-tariff for wind from INR 4.50/kWh ($0.07kWh) to INR 3.73/kWh ($0.058/kWh), putting roughly 600MW of projects in jeopardy.

A whirlwind of problems

LINDENWOOD – Five years ago a wind turbine was erected at Eswood Elementary School with hopes to take the school off the grid and cover energy costs. The wind turbine could be seen spinning in the wind, it never fulfilled its purpose or produced any energy for the school. Instead the turbine stood behind the school and was a nuisance and danger. The windmill was installed in May 2012 by Dr. Mayberry who retired from the school in June 2012. . . .

Wind energy scam

I attended the PUC meeting in Clark Wednesday on the Crocker Wind Farm. The developer that mixed up the Kool Aid for the proponents did a great job. Studying this wind energy scam for seven years, I have seen how the developers give them all the same coaching for their speeches. What affected me the most was sad. I have never been to the “Crocker Hills,” but it sounds like a beautiful place, and I will visit this wonder of . . .

A warning to Savoy about wind turbines

People of Savoy: It is wise to learn from your mistakes and even wiser to learn from the mistakes of others. I live in Scituate, 3,200 feet from a single 1.5 MW wind turbine. Six years ago the wind industry came to town and sold a bill of goods to our town officials. They said that the turbine would not have any negative impact on the community and they believed it, for they were persuasive and very believable. For the . . .
