Rush County Wind Awareness LLC

Welcome

IF YOU’RE NOT SURE WHETHER WIND POWER IS RIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTY OR YOUR LAND, TAKE A LOOK AT THIS VIDEO TO SEE WHAT HAS BEEN LEARNED BY THOSE WHO CURRENTLY HAVE WIND TURBINES OR LIVE AROUND THEM.

Here is the link to the actual tort claim as filed by Apex Energy against Rush County! To see related post regarding the tort claim go here.

As you may or may not know, Rush County is considering a proposal to construct approximately (65) 500’ to 610’ tall wind turbines throughout the northeastern quadrant of the county. Research and learn what impacts a wind turbine located near you might have on your home and your family – a wind turbine has far reaching effects that do not stay confined to the property boundaries on which it is located. Once something like this is done, there is no going back. Take a look at this powerful video presentation by a non participant DeKalb Illinois family whose home at the time was in the midst of the wind farm. This is what some of OUR county family members will be forced to deal with!

And most importantly, every one of the county leaders needs to hear from you! For contact information, please select the following links: Rush County Commissioners, Rush County Council
