Both of the potential harm and potential benefit needs to be known by the potentially affected communities before a large project is built. If we want to build commercial scale turbines, then we must be committed to agreement with the affected communities about how to cover or share in covering the potential losses.
To those who believe they need money from Apex Clean Energy: I sympathize with your belief about needing money in our communities. We are dependent on each other. Let’s slow down, improve our communication, and strive for solutions that support each other.
I will be voting yes unless I learn of willingness of the landowners to help people who may become hurt by sound and flicker pollution created by the turbines. If I was one of the landowners who wanted the wind farm, I would look for the residents who might suffer from noise and flicker pollution and agree in writing to help them relocate if the turbines will cause too much trouble for them. I would need a lawyer’s help.
May we see the lease agreements that are signed by the landowners?
Do the lease agreements state what your responses will be if there are noise or flicker complaints from the landowners or residents living near the turbines, whether the residents live in or outside Crawford County? I read that sleep can be affected by noise levels as low as 30dB.
