Today two billboards were planted along Route 30. The purpose is to inform folks about the scale of turbine construction being proposed for this area and alert wind companies that Folmont will defend the rights of its property owners, including litigation as expedient.
The billboard says "THOUSANDS". Thousands? Yes, thousands.
Testimony before our Energy Committee and most other sources suggest that to produce this much wind energy in the United States could require building more than 100,000 of new, massive wind turbines. We have less than 7,000 such windmills in the U.S. today, with the largest number in Texas and California. -- Sen. Lamar Alexander, Windmill Legislation Introduction
