Breaking Wind – Quick hits from the industry for November 18, 2010

Items of interest:

1-New video from the Allegheny Highlands Alliance folks will be posted today.  It is called “What We Expect From Commercial Electricity” and it’s Excellent!

2-Hmmm!  Maybe the good professor would like to meet Dr. Nina Pierpont, MD, PhD:  “Jonathan Miles, a James Madison University professor and founder of the Virginia Wind Energy Collaborative, said no scientific studies have concluded that turbines’ noise affects humans. The decibel level set in the ordinance is standard, he added.” You know what?  Maybe we can help make that introduction!  (h/t – VA Wind)

3-There’s nothing better than a good plot, slightly thickened!  “The hottest topic of the meeting surrounded Plan Commission President David Schilling.  Schilling did not attend Wednesday’s meeting because he was prepared to abstain from voting.  His reasoning, he signed a lease agreement to rent his land to the Wind Captial Group back in June 2010.  However, he did not inform other board members of his potential conflict of interest until October 2010.  Board members and citizens agreed that Schilling created a conflict of interest and tainted the whole ordinance process.  Now they must start completely over.
