Ohio Power Siting Board: Deny the Emerson Creek Wind Farm application

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The Emerson Creek Wind Farm is an Industrial Wind Farm project, consisting of up to 71 Turbines, planned to tower at 655 ft tall. The project footprint is located in both Erie and Huron counties of Northern Ohio. The affected counties are heavily populated, and are home to over 135,000 residents.

To put these proposed turbines is perspective, their 655 ft height will make them taller than all but 4 Skyscrapers in the entire state of Ohio.

Industrial Wind Turbines have been proven to significantly affect property values and home saleability, causing area property owners to lose millions of dollars. The few “benefits” of these projects are entirely negated by the irreversible damage that they inflict, including noise, flashing lights, shadow flicker, and harm to wildlife.

The opposition to Emerson Creek Wind is overwhelming, however the affected property owners are nearly helpless. All Ohio wind farms with a generating capacity of 5 or more megawatts are regulated by The Ohio Power Siting Board. This means that the affected landowners have ZERO local influence on whether the project can be built. The Emerson Creek Wind application is currently “pending”, so we must act quickly.
