Maryland wind project faces opposition
A company with close ties to the Obama administration, Pioneer Green Energy, is proposing an industrial wind project on Maryland's eastern shore, directly across the Chesapeake Bay from Washington D.C.. The "Grand Bay" wind project would threaten national security by interferring with the Paxutent Naval Air Station's ADAMS radar system. The Somerset project is also seeking the nation's first 30-year bald eagle take (kill) permit. Click here to read more
Alabama Senate protects state from industrial wind
The Alabama Senate passed legislation designed to protect Alabamians from industrial wind devastation that has occurred in some other states. Alabama has no industiral wind, but Pioneer Green Energy is proposing turbines up to 570 feet tall in beautiful northeastern Alabama to help the Tennessee Valley Authority fulfill their federal 25% renewable mandate. Despite lobbying against the bill by heavy-hitter NextEra, the citizens bill has passed the Senate intact and will move on to the Alabama House. Click here to read more
Lake Erie Area Camp Perry Project Halted
Federal authorities in charge of the Camp Perry turbine, which is planned in a major migration route on the shores of Lake Erie, have withdrawn the project in light of opposition by Black Swamp Bird Observatory, American Bird Conservancy, and the thousands of citizens who signed the Black Swamp Bird Observatory petition.

A Voice For Concerned Citizens
Efforts have been supported by individual citizens contributing their time, talent and money and by a few educated legislators acting in the public interest. In addition to raising technical and economic concerns, citizens around the world have shared their experiences of wind turbine impacts including: unique unregulated industrial noise, loss of property value, induced voltage, wildlife impact (protected eagles), and shadow flicker. In Minnesota and other parts of the Midwest, foreign-owned wind companies control ever-increasing prime agricultural production acreage on 50-year leases. The wind companies have your tax dollars, legal mandates written by their attorneys and lobbyists, government agencies, huge multi-national corporations and well-funded “non-profit wind promotion organizations” disguised as environmental organizations. Their goal is to get more of your tax and electrical rate money. Relentless participation by local citizens is bringing effective change. Help us change the future of industrial wind.
Coalition for Sensible Siting (CSS)
CSS recognizes the scientific, economic, and safety short falls of industrial wind. Turbines are, none-the-less, being installed and the Coalition for Sensible Siting advocates that citizens’ broad concerns, based upon science, economics and experience should hold sway over politicalagendas driven by financial gain when siting turbines. Citizens, who pay both the tax and electrical rate bill for renewable energy, should have a significant voice in the formation of national and state energy policy.
Your donations will help CSS work with elected officials, government appointees, and the individual farmers, landowners and parties affected by the reckless and uncontrolled siting of these projects.
