RED ALERT electric grid energy is routinely over produced with fossil fuel sources and wind turbines are often turned on to use up this energy what is going on here?

See if you can get any of these companies to tell you how much energy they draw from the grid exactly, if you find out contact me.
Since learning this I have to ask, is energy being dumped from other wind farms????

The grid cannot sustain all these massive fluctuations that go on with wind energy thus there appears to be need for wind energy dumping, so this farm is likely yet another part of this broader energy dump scheme that costs us all a lot of our hard working green dollar energy.

This is what you see when you let wind farming blow into your community all night long, incessant bright flashing red lights destroying pristine nite sky and horizons. Industrial wind and solar wastes energy as they add chaos to the grid management systems forcing standby power to run more often. Then the excess energy is dumped. We cannot allow such destruction of our energy and viewscapes to continue. The industrial application of renewables are based on a scam to get your energy.

see how horrible these things look

read more about Chevelon Butte

If renewable energy is being looked at as a solution to climate change we need to understand that carbon dioxide comprises a mere 4/10,000ths of the entire atmosphere where as water vapor comprises 4%. Water vapor, sun's radiation, and space frigid minus 456 degrees below zero farenheit is THE CAUSE OF ALL EARTH'S CLIMATE CHANGE. Man has ZERO effect on it. Thus wind farms should not be built. They are a waste of our energy which could be better used for more roads and bridges, pencils in classrooms or bigger classrooms and more teachers, and many other things.

The Chevelon Butte wind farm that is proposed is not a good thing for Arizona, the public as a whole, do not solve climate change, and not good for the forest behind Chevelon Butte, and that entire region. Wind farms are not good for the planet either as they waste energy, cost a fortune to dismantle and dispose of, and when they are decommissioned communities can be stuck with the bills for even keeping those red aviation lights on at a cost of $1000 per month per turbine. If Coconino County gets stuck with that for keeping the electric on for those lights could cost $156,000 PER MONTH until the turbines are dismantled. They could be on the hook for all removal costs. Wind energy is not profitable, end subsidies and these projects are gone with the wind, they have no interest in building them anymore.

Wind farms are all tied to the grid existentially inextricably using fossil fuels to be built and function and be maintained and only produce 1/5th what is claimed and suck your tax dollars handing them to industrialist portfolios and then they all go spend all the money you give them to live like rock stars using more fossil fuels.

Did you know that they actually use energy from the fossil fuel based grid to force the blades to spin? I didn't either until one day when I was told about this. You might see them spinning and they might be using energy not producing it. We are on the wrong path and have to stop destroying our gorgeous serene open spaces.

 Chevelon Canyon areas are so beautiful and should be left unspoiled by these blight producers.
Is this what we want our landscapes to look like everywhere with the lie called green energy?

Red flashing lights blinking all night long are appearing in every rural back yard and open space around the world with these scam transfers of YOUR GREEN DOLLAR ENERGY.

The basis for all of these renewable energy schemes is the fallacy that there are carbon blankets in the sky that wind and solar will blow away. There are no blankets or footprints as carbon dioxide comprises so little of the atmosphere it is 100% insignificant.

I will post minutes of meeting when available

there was no live video


Navajo County SUP hearing will be December 10 @ 9:00am in Holbrook at the County Complex  view SUP
contact Navajo County at (928) 524-4100 or online here

look how wind farms & AZ route 87 would look at night

GEN-TIE environmental impact APPROVED on 10/28/2019

THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE ENTIRE PROJECT WILL BE BUILT YET

Arizona Corporation Commission states that the project meets their guidlines for environmental compatibility and "Page 2Docket No. L-21080A-19-0171-001821The Commission further finds and concludes that in balancing the broad public interest in this2matter:31.5678The Project is in the public interest because it aids the state in meeting the need for an4adequate, economical, and reliable supply of electric power"

This flies in the face of reality wind farms are NOT RELIABLE, NOT ECONOMICAL, and NOT ADEQUATE supplies of electric power. It may "aid" the reliable power grid that is based on reliable fossil fuels or reliable hydro dams or reliable nuclear but very little, just try asking any of these people involved for exact numbers on how much POWER THEY DRAW FROM THE GRID VS. HOW MUCH THEY ADD. Mr. Unrein of sPower would not provide me with even estimates as I requested.

Telling us that they will "aid" is like telling us we can "aid" the traffic control tower at the airport with a drug crazed individual who needs work in assisting the staff which is how wind energy behaves and gets delivered to the grid IF it gets delivered at all, it is chaotic. It's like the controllers can tell that wacky drug crazed energy to go sit in the corner at times, many times to make sure it doesn't ruin the grid as they don't even always "aid" the grid with the power that is generated. These are NOT ECONOMICAL as they depend on taxpayers they cannot function in a free market. THEY ARE WASTES OF OUR ENERGY.

Warren Buffet invests in wind saying that the only reason they work is because of tax payer's subsidies that he would not invest in them without the subsidies as they are not profitable. I'm sure he doesn't have any in his back yard. The rich always plop these on the poorer rural areas making what little they may have now or ever had as they lived in the country peacefully such as the awesome beauty of dark skies be destroyed by their interest in creating energy for their portfolios as they claim it's good for the people when in reality it is only good for those profiting from drawing our energy into their bank accounts.

""We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit."

THEY DON'T MAKE SENSE

i will be updating with a review of the entire special use permit application submitted by sPower to Navajo County with comments as I find time

special note: On 9/15/2019 I signed up for email alerts on AZCC docket portal online services I received one notice and THAT WAS ALL. I was not notified of the October 11 and 18 open meeting agenda or the decision by the AZCC email notification system. As I go look at that area of the login portal I see it's asking me to sign up as if I never did. ?????? Being that I made a rather fierce public opposition and have written extensively on this matter I find this interesting that the system suddenly dropped me from being notified. Also I have been waiting on receiving the transcripts of the meeting in September so as to study what was discussed in that meeting. As of 11/7/2019 I have received no response from Coash & Coash. I was under the impression I had time as it was stated that they were looking at another meeting on December 5, suddenly I go check on the AZCC portal and find they made their decision. Was I shut out? No. I made the error of choosing to "filter" as I was interested in receiving new posts in opposition so that's all I got, since there were no additional oppositions posted (though there is a lot of actual opposition) I never received any notices. If you sign up for following dockets be sure to leave this "filter" blank, just enter your email under the receive updates section. I spoke with both Coash & Coash and AZCC regarding these items. Coash & Coash assisted me beautifully and promised to send me the transcripts of the 3 days of hearings at no cost in read only format. I sent letter to address for AZCC? It's confusing on their site as there are two addresses. AZCC was also very helpful in resolving this confusion. Thanks to all of them who assisted. These matters were handled professionally and politely and expediciously. Be sure to just call them if you need assistance as that can save you a lot of time, frustration, and it can provide quick resolutions of your concerns and don't wait around especially with Navajo and Coconino special use permit hearings and matters. Here are the contacts exactly as stated on website at azcc.gov. Docket control is AZCC. They only have transcripts that they host. The September meetings were hosted by Attorney General and Coash & Coash maintains those. It's a bit confusing. I hope this brings some clarity. Here you will see the contacts, below those is my PREFERRED VERSION which I have suggested they consider some possible changes. Keep in mind AZCC handles all sorts of grid matters and proposals for new lines and such so you may want to look at projects near you.

For transcripts dated 1/1/2014 and later:

wind energy subsidies are ending soon and they are scrambling to get theirs locked in for decades of your money flowing to them in what we could call a windfall of gobs of your energy going to the rich investors, developers, and all involved, money that should be going to build homes for people on the streets and roads and bridges to somewhere

does Arizona have a bill like the one proposed in New York that mandates public be well notified in advance and robust public discussion proceed well in advance before any such electrical generation project could be approved whereas 51% of voters in affected district giving approval by vote would be required?

RE: GEN-TIE

click here for details and what public comments were made

read my public comment 

you can intervene in a case with proper notice at least 5 days prior - you can ask questions of a witness this way

have your voice heard

GEN-TIE first set of hearings in Sept are over there may be more on Dec 4

there was a overwhelming opposition but the GEN-TIE was approved of course!

there are various parts to this whole process of approvals the latest is with Navajo County as sPower seeks a special use permit - see above


RE: sPower the wind project developer

sPower was bought by AES corporation in 2018

it is a global conglomerate with energy projects everywhere

AES corporation is responsible for soon to see destruction of even the most beautiful part of the world, Hawaii, with energy wasting blight inducing disgusting wind farms using your guaranteed tax dollars

 

these tax subsidy schemes that are the foundation of building these disgusting view hacking wind farms funnel your money into the rich portfolios around the world away from you and away from more important & more efficient uses of your tax dollars like roads and non nauseating projects that do not waste energy

it is a massive publicly traded company with 2018 income of $11 billion

The company's founding was 1981 by Roger Sant and Dennis Bakke. Roger Sant was initially an appointee on the Federal Energy Administration by Richard Nixon. He resigned afer Enron scandal in 2002.

The company is involved with a "power center energy storage project" with Southern California Edison.* Is this a battery storage facility I wonder - these systems are already proven to be expensive and ineffective in assisting in managing the utter chaos that wind and solar infuse into the grid where as the wind farms are routinely turned on powering the blades from over supply.

California Public Utilities Commission and California Energy Commission brings you such wacky lies about climate and lies used to get your energy such as what appears on their website energyupgradeca.org,

"Carbon dioxide isn’t harmful at natural levels, but too much can act like a layer of plastic wrap around the Earth that lets in heat from the sun but doesn’t let it escape. The atmosphere acts like a greenhouse, which is why these emissions are called greenhouse gases."

There is no plastic wrap made of carbon dioxide air. Plastic wrap is a solid. CO2 is invisible readily instantly MOVABLE air that immediately allows cooling from frigid space and frigid upper layers of atmosphere.

Our atmosphere is not a greenhouse. Calling our atmosphere a greenhouse is used as a marketing ploy. Calling carbon dioxide AIR a greenhouse gas is disingenuous as there is no solid structure up in the sky nor does carbon dioxide cause greenhouse warming.

The lie about heat being trapped is used to sell you "renewable energy" that is terribly wasteful of our resources and has never lived up to all the hype and many lies surrounding it to benefit those who are profiting immensly as they are ruining the planet with these schemes.

Here is the preferred night time light pollution free views that Native Americans enjoyed for thousands of years we should too as it's getting harder and further to drive thus wasting more energy to get to anywhere that is light pollution free and Chevelon Canyon is one of those rare places and should remain that way. Maintaining open space actually saves energy in many ways and it's hard to put a price on the tremendous value provided by the serenity we experience when we visit these areas and gaze up at unspoiled skies free of all light pollution where we are mezmerized by quadrazillions of stars and galaxies above us we can almost touch out there. Chevelon Butte, Chevelon Canyon and the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest offer some of the least spoiled lands anywhere in the United States and should remain that way for generations to come.
