  1. Dale Arnold is a shill for the wind energy companies. Ask him about noise, flicker, migraines, infrastructure, and ACTUAL levels of production, not nameplate levels. Wind does not work in Ohio, it does not work close to people, and it does not work without government subsidies. Electricity costs will go up for everyone and the only winner is the wind company.

    • Personal wind turbines make sense. Small footprint, good return. It is the industrial wind turbines that should be outlawed around people, just like explosive factories.
