There will be a public meeting this coming Monday night, July 19, on the proposed Extension of the Industrial Wind Energies Facilities Moratorium Law of 2010. The Hearing by the Prrattsburgh Town Board will be held at the Prattsburgh Town Hall, 19 North Main Street, Prattsburgh, New York at 7PM.

All citizens concerned about adequate setbacks from their property lines to address noise and threats to health, safety and property values should attend this very important meeting.

Please make every effort to attend.

Windmill Myths
MYTH # 16: These windfarms are "green" power. We need then to help save us from global warming, and I should pay my utility a premium for it.
Fact: The U.S. Department of Energy projects that, even with the continuation of massive subsidies, wind power will represent only a fraction of the INCREASE in future power production, so wind power won't impact global warming. Far worse, many wind projects receive Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) based on their projected production, which are then traded to heavy polluters, allowing outdated fossil fuel plants to generate pollution beyond normal regulatory limits. These wind projects are not green power, but BROWN POWER, and your electric utility wants you to pay a premium for it. Extraordinary.
