THE FIRST TURBINE BEGINS TO GO UP IN GLENMORE

A SMALL PROJECT COMPARED TO permitted Glacier HIlls projcect and the proposed Ledge Wind project.
Warning from a landowner in the Glacier Hill project.......
SOURCE: PSC Docket # 9554-CE-100

To the landowners in the Ledge Wind Project:

If you believe wind turbines are a good fit for a farm operation, a free source of clean energy, and a benefit to your community, I invite you to come to the Glacier Hills Project and witness the total devastation occuring during construction.

Seeing firsthand what is happening here would turn any responsible landowner's stomach.

Heavy rains have created erosion that will take years to repair.

The number of huge construction equipment and trucks burning fuel is staggering.

Good productive farmland is being ripped apart, and will never be the same.

The level of disgust is even affecting the most loyal supporters of this project.

Hatred of this project is growing worse as each day passes, and we will be forced to live with this for the rest of our lives, all because a few irresponsible landowners, myself included, were taken in by wind developers lies.

All this for chump change.

Deadline pressure and 100 amendments are cracking the unity of the state‘s Wind Siting Council as it strives to agree on turbine placement standards.

WIND TURBINES POSE GROUND WATER, HEATLH ISSUES, PANEL SAYS
BOARD OF HEALTH ADVISES AGAINST WIND FARMS IN SOUTHERN BROWN COUNTY

CLICK FOR ARTICLE, GREEN BAY PRESS GAZETTE

Dr. Jay Tibbetts, a member of the Board of Health, said there is ample evidence that wind turbines might cause health and safety issues. He mentioned noise and shadow flickers in addition to the groundwater problem.

"They shouldn't build here, period," Tibbetts said.

In its report to the Human Services Committee, the board is recommending that there be a minimum setback range of 2,640 to 3,168 feet from a turbine to an occupied structure. It also is proposing that the World Health Organization's maximum 30-decibel standard be adopted.

The Enz's are not the only families suffering the ill effects of
being forced to live too close to industrial wind turbines.


ANOTHER FAMILY, WHO HAS CHOOSEN  NOT TO GO PUBLIC AT THIS TIME,
AND WHO LIVES 1-MILE AWAY FROM THE CLOSEST TURBINE,
HAS NOW ABANDONED THEIR HOME.............


After turbines in the Blue Sky/Green Field project went on line near the Town of Marshall in Fond Du Lac county, James Vollmer's chickens began to fail. His hatch rate plummeted and there were a high number of unusual deformities in the chicks that did hatch, including missing eyes, crossed beaks and missing leg bones.

Vollmer has been around chickens his whole life. His grandmother and grandfather raised poultry and he says he took to it right away.  He has photograph taken by his grandmother of himself  as a toddler in the chicken house with baby chicks nesting on his back. He says, “I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t around chickens.”

A dairy farmer named Kevin Ashenbrenner whose farm is located in the Shirley Wind project (Town of Glenmore, Brown County WI),   HAS LOST 17 CALVES AND 15 COWS
since the Shirley turbines began spinning,
which is more than he normally would loose in 5 years of farming and breeding. 

The closest turbine to the house is 9/10 mile away as the crow flies. Six turbines total are located near the property.    The family is also suffering badly with headaches, anxiety, and insomnia. 


Another Wisconsin farmer, Joe Yunk, reported to the Wisconsin PSC, what happened to his beef cattle after the turbines went on line near the farm that was in his family for generations:

Shortly after the turbines began to operate, I had beef cattle become ill and die.  I lost ten animals valued at $5,000 [each] over a two year period and couldn’t afford to continue."

Kevin and Joe are not alone. This video interview with Kewanee County dairy farmer Scott Srnka describes similar problems after turbines went on line near his farm.  This happened years ago and industrial turbines continue to be sited to close to humans and animals.
