Not all county boards buy anti-wind rhetoric
From an article by Brian Huchel in the Danville (IL) Commercial News:
No action was taken Thursday night to make changes to Vermilion County’s ordinance on wind farms.
The Vermilion County Board’s executive and legislation committee met on Thursday to discuss the results of a report by corporate counsel Bill Donahue into a number of concerns, complaints and allegations raised by a small number of residents regarding the wind farms and the county’s ordinance.
Darrell and Kim Cambron of rural Rankin have been the most consistently outspoken critics, raising concerns ranging from the 1,000-foot setback from a person’s property for wind turbines to issues of noise and shadow flicker.
Donahue’s report called the information the Cambrons provided “inconclusive” at best and “at worst simply borne out by looking at the real life experiences of other counties.”
“Basically, with regard to the Internet science materials, you can find an expert to say anything you want,” he said. “Nothing I found shows substantiation that this is an ultra-hazardous situation.”
