Potter Commissioners Mulling Windmills


WFRM
Reading a prepared statement at last week’s meeting, Potter County Commissioner Paul Heimel said the board continues to review and study the issue of wind turbines.


Heimel said it is by far the most controversial issue facing the new board and an untold amount of hours have gone into research. He said, that’s why the board has not yet taken any action on the Planning Commission’s recommendations.

Heimel added he will be going to the southern part of the state in the next few weeks on other county business and will do some first hand research on the subject while there.

have to hand it to the new commissioners at least they are making up their own minds about issues. in face of rising costs for petroleum we need to be seriously looking at other sources and it seems wind is certainly something that we have plenty of and the best thing about it is --it is FREE and clean and very renewable if we ever run low we could always have fast eddie come to potter county. face it people we need to look at other sources for our energy. maybe with the biofeul we can get something back in potter county that we lost along time ago "FARMS" i am all for the wind mills and have seen and heard them and after living about 50 yards from the railroad growing up and later in life windmills are a whisper. as far as the shadow flicker dont we have that now "when the wind blows and the trees sway or clouds go by?"

I grew up in Bolivar, NY which was an oil town back then (long time ago) but vividly remember the boom, boom, boom that echoed through the hills every day and night from the pressure plant engines that pumped water down the wells to flood the oil out. Was almost hard to get used to when the oil business declined and the one bangers were quieted.

Received my Sam's Club spring club members sale book yesterday and guess what?! They are selling to club members available April 9th '08, an Eco Home Makeover!

Yup, you get Solar panels and WIND TURBINE to provide renewable energy for a 3,000 to 4,000 sq. ft home, installation included with internet monitoring, New GE Energy Star kitchen appliances along with energy star compact fluorescent light bulbs, new Energy Star front load laundry products and 1 year of sustainable laundry products. AND while your home is having this all installed you get to stay 6days/5 nights at Cape Elizabeth Maine...all for $44,000.00.

Instead of all the bitchin' at these planning commission meetings maybe these people against the wind turbines should be asking if there is a way for area homes to have solar panals installed on their roofs that could be controlled by satelite and maybe we could all have lower electric bills!

But once again, "Not In My Back Yard" complainers will drag their feet and our area will lose out on a way to bring tax revenue in to Potter County. Does not surprise me. Wonder if any of them are related to the Kennedys? After all Ted does not want wind turbines near his famous vacation home but was caught dumping gallons of diesel fuel in the water when his large expensive boat blew a hose! Bet that hurt the environment more than the noise the turbines would be making!

maybe more people that are open to the wind turbines and solar panels need to start going to the planning commission meetings and do some "bitching" of our own. but as i understand it you would not be able to speak. people need to get off their own self appionted pedestals and look at the BIG PICTURE and not their own agendas
some of these people on these commissions remind you of the left over wanna be hippies from the 60's
(oh the good ole days) but failed at that also

I grew up on the Horse Run Road near the NY border. My father worked for Messer Oil in that area. When my friends would spend the night their main complaint was hearing the pump station across from our house all night. I never understood why it bothered them until the day they stopped. We all had a hard time with the silence. Happy memories!
