Leaks stall turbines, Gloucester’s wind income

GLOUCESTER – The two wind turbines generating electricity and revenue for the city of Gloucester have been slowed due to mechanical issues in recent weeks – and that has slowed the revenue stream the city expects from the giant alternative energy sources. Both of the city’s turbines on the grounds of the former Gloucester Engineering property have leaking hydraulics issues, said Sumul Shah, who works with Solaya Energy of Stoneham and manages maintenance and repairs for the turbines for Equity Partners . . .

Wind developer offer: generous or a bribe?

A wind farm developer has offered a deal hard to refuse: three-quarters of your electric bill paid for for 30 years. It would be for almost all year-round residents of Hopkinton. Avangrid Renewables says the idea came out of talks with residents. “The feedback we were getting involved questions about whether people could benefit personally on their electric bills from having a clean energy facility in their community,” said Paul Copleman, Avangrid spokesman. Residents won’t be getting the wind power. . . . Complete story »

Hints of a lawsuit if state wind incentives pass

The wind industry could lose out on hundreds of millions of dollars of tax incentives with another change proposed by lawmakers. House Bill 3711 advanced in House and Senate budget committees on Thursday. It would cap income tax credits available to wind energy producers at $35 million annually. The Legislature ended the incentive for new projects last year. The most recent figures showed more than 150 companies were claiming a total of $60 million through the incentive. The result, if . . .

Latest wind turbine project is a bad idea

Less than a year after backers of a proposed wind turbine farm near Searchlight threw in the towel after failing to convince a federal judge their Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was accurate, an even bigger project just 10 miles to the west has started the environmental review process. A week ago a notice was published in the Federal Register by the Bureau of Land Management initiating a 90-day public comment period for the proposed Crescent Peak Renewables wind farm that . . .

Smith: Understanding Vermont’s energy policies

Most Vermonters accept the reality of climate change and support shifting our energy needs towards renewables. But in my conversations with Vermonters I have found that almost no one fully understands the mechanisms that have been put in place to achieve the state’s renewable energy goals. In fact, our energy policies are so complicated and convoluted that even Vermont legislators – many of whom consistently vote in favor of bills purporting to bring the state closer to a goal of . . .

Opinion: Amish man who lives in Parishville shares fears about wind farm project

As a member of the Amish community, I would like to share my concerns about the industrial wind project proposed for our area. Amish families use wood for many purposes from heating our homes to cooking, canning, and heating water for cleaning, laundry, and so forth. We work the land, spending long days in the fields from early spring through late fall, so the job of cutting wood for the following year is done during the winter months. Last summer . . .

The crane pads currently used by Consumers for wind turbine repair are temporary, and are laid down and removed whenever a turbine requires maintenance or repairs. Mason County Building . . .
