While the North East Township supervisors and planning board want to move wind turbines ever closer to houses and property, taking their cue from the wind developer and those few residents who will benefit financially from turbine installations, they might want to pay attention to people who actually live near them right now.
After the turbines are up, the damage will be done. It’s easy to imagine township officials trying to excuse their blunder when it eventually becomes obvious to everyone, they’ll ask, “How could we have known?” The answer will be simple, you could have listened.
This is a trailer from a video coming out next month from Windwise, called TOO Close – the Victim’s Stories
UPDATE: Full video available now.
Sad that this was placed so close to resident, there are so many places that turbines can be sited to not have an impact like this. Proper siting is key, making sure not to impact birds, bats, people, etc has to take place, or you get a publicity black eye and people against you.
I would love to see more community owned wind projects in proper sites, where the people around the turbines are partial owners benefiting financially. It’s happening in our community, and could be a model everywhere:
