well its begun, just over hill about 150 yards from house. They started drilling mid week. not too bad noise wise, cat 12 cyl diesels run hydraulics, eletrical, air compressors and all lighting. guess theres 4 running at all times, with 4 back up units. Dread the days that start fracking, and then burn off the wells. Burned wells off 3 miles away a few months ago, might as well have been at a international airport under approack or take off zone. Burn off is hideously LOUD!!

That would be disruptive for sure, and annoying.

Here (Maine) they complain about a little whine from windmills and the "flicker" they cast into peoples houses. The flicker though, only comes in short time frames during the day on sunny days. You, have a complaint; these people in Maine...not so much.

Problem is gas companies have a lot more influence than wind companies. And from what I have seen the wind companies do have a lot as well.

You think ME is bad you ought to see MA! A state loaded with lefty libbies, but when wind & solar come to town, the NIMBY's come out in full force against it.

One town near Worcester is battling to open a gas station ..... on the site of a former gas station ... but the neighbors don't want it there! :doh: :rofl: Oh you just gotta love MA!! :roll:

The thing with gas is, it is underground and goes through the aquifer so there is more at stake then just the landowner. I am not saying it is wrong to drill or not drill, it just affects more people. Wind however, is above ground and other then a few local homeowners, and some views, does not affect as many people.

Windmills were going to be placed on our land because we live high on a hill and is actually one of very few places you can see Mt Katadin to the North which is 90 miles away, and Mt Washington which is 150 miles away to the west...at the same time! Great place for windmills. With a 5000 per month electric bill to operate a 1200 cow dairy farm, we would have really been ahead. As was, the towns people would get free electricity (as well as us) for the next 20 years. Still the town passed a rule saying no windmills in our town. One woman told me...who owns 1 acre in town, in a valley..."I do not want to look up and see windmills on MY hills." I said, "Judy, since when are they YOUR hills? Do you pay taxes on them? Have you been here since 1746? Have you had high heating costs because that wind blows the heat right out of the house? Do you constantly plow snow because of all that drifted snow? It is about time we cashed in on that blasted wind!"

I think we could fight this. Maine is a Right to Farm State, and as such wind power is a best management practice. legally I think we have the right to use wind power to power our farm since the Right to Farm Act empowers farmers to over throw silly municipal laws. For instance one town we farm in passed a no GMO crops law, but because we are a Right to Farm State, we drop the planter and go because they have no authority to tell us how to farm. Why not with wind power...but no one wants to fight this ruling for some reason. I guess they just want to pay 5 grand a month for a few electrons...

In my neck of the woods a Co. wanted to put a tires to energy plant in, they tried in Erie first & just got fed up after all that industrial zoned shoreline shouldn't have anything to block the view, create jobs & produce power. Then the Co. wanted to build closer to me at an old munitions site that is zoned for & has all utilities & rail (all unused) & much of the same people come down here from Erie & elsewhere to fight & misinform even our co=op power Co. is all for it. All private funding, proven tech (at least on a smaller scale) & if it didn't work as promised it was going to be dismantled but people would rather complain about taxes, utility bills, discarded tires everywhere & paying a disposal fee for both new & old tires (reason why tires are dumped) than try something new, after all I guess they would have less to complain about.

I had people come up on my property once with their 4 wheelers during hunting season. They had permission from one of the neighbors to hunt so they figured they had a right to drive all the properties surrounding the area. That really pissed me off.
