A wind turbine caught fire in West Pubnico, N.S., late Friday afternoon, throwing huge, burning pieces of material to the ground. Firefighters were called to the scene around 5 p.m., but West Pubnico fire department Chief Gordon Amiro said there was little firefighters could do to douse the flames. “We couldn’t get nowhere near because the blades was still turning, so, and pieces was breaking off the blades,” he said. “So if a piece was to fall off, it would . . .

WEST PUBNICO, N.S. – With large chunks of burning nacelle components and melting fibreglass blades falling from 80 metres above, there wasn’t much the West Pubnico Fire Department could do when a wind turbine fire was reported the afternoon of March 15. “We couldn’t get close enough and we wouldn’t be able to throw water that high anyway,” said Chief Gordon Amiro. Anything that was burnable in the nacelle, the large bus-shaped structure at the top of the tower, along with . . .

Some Illinois lawmakers want to rush through legislation that would change the dynamic for a plan to erect dozens of wind turbines in central Illinois. The bill has yet to pass House muster, but Illinois’ state Senators discussed it in committee Thursday with the plan to send it quickly for a vote once it goes to their chamber, a rare move for the General Assembly. The measure would restrict wind farm regulations outside of a municipality to the county alone, . . .

Residents suffering water-well problems on their properties near the North Kent 1 Wind farm are growing tired of waiting for answers. Water Wells First members were once optimistic after a promise made by Ontario Progressive Conservative Party Leader Doug Ford during last year’s provincial election campaign that a health-hazard investigation would be initiated if he was elected premier. However, since the citizens’ group received that promise in writing from Ford last May, its members continue to wait for this investigation . . .

Nearly 50 elected and business officials from southeastern Massachusetts are urging the Baker administration to tweak the contracting process for the next offshore wind procurement to give a greater emphasis to onshore development investments. Gov.

A controversial change suggested to a £3m wind farm funding pot to yield a bigger share for Hawick has been greeted with dismay in neighbouring communities. Late last year, it was thought agreement had been reached between the seven community councils in Teviot and Liddesdale that each would receive an equal share of a community benefit fund set up after approval was given for the 12-turbine Pines Burn wind farm on the Harwood Estate, near Bonchester Bridge. That’s a fund . . .

There are more questions than answers provided by the UK-based power developer RES in its claim to writer James Morgan that the Eastern Fields wind power project is “on hold.” How does a project where the contract was cancelled five months previously get a 20-year contract to generate electricity from the Ontario Energy Board? If, as RES says, that was just “perfunctory,” the Ford government has a bigger problem with “red tape” than it knows. And why, when the project . . .

Plans to build one or two 400-foot wind turbines southeast of the intersection of Crystal and Bigelow avenues were rejected Thursday by Findlay City Planning Commission. The action was a foregone conclusion after the city zoning appeals board last month denied One Energy’s request for a variance from city laws setting a 40- to 100-foot limit on wind turbines. Crystal Avenue residents have denounced the proposed wind turbines as an eyesore which would sink their property values and flicker shadows . . .
