To our friends in Alabama, below is a link to an op-ed by our President in the Birmingham News explaining the political climate that led to our decision to terminate our wind energy projects in northeast Alabama.  We very much regret our decision to terminate these projects, but we were left with no other decision under such extreme circumstances.
We ask that you contact your local legislator(s) and Governor Bentley to show your support for renewable energy in the state and to urge them to adopt more sensible policies that will ensure that Alabama will not be left behind in the rapidly growing clean energy movement. 
Below are links to find out how to contact your local legislator(s) and contact information for Governor Bentley.
Thanks to all for your support throughout the past months and years.  With your voice, we are hopeful that more reasonable policies will be adopted in the future.


  • Investing in Cherokee County

    Shinbone Wind will contribute significant amounts of tax revenue to Cherokee County, which means more money for the community to invest in schools, roads and services. These tax revenues also could be used in part to reduce existing taxes. Construction of the project will spur substantial economic activity and bring needed local jobs.
  • Energy Independence

    Shinbone Wind will increase our energy independence and help move the country away from unstable foreign energy supplies. It will also reduce Alabama’s reliance on highly-polluting energy sources such as coal. Instead, Alabama will be able to count on an inexhaustible, clean, and renewable source of energy found right in its own backyard.

  • Wind Turbines Don’t Make You Feel Sick or Healthy, but Spin Can

    Into the Wind By Fiona Crichton Despite at least 19 reviews of the scientific evidence universally concluding that exposure to wind farm sound doesn’t trigger adverse health effects, people continue to report feeling unwell because they live near wind turbines.We’ve known for some time that exposure to negative messages about wind farms makes people more likely to report feeling sick after exposure to turbines. And new research, published by my colleagues and I this week in the journal Health Psychology, shows positive messages about wind farms may have the opposite effect – improve perceptions of health.   Infrasound Speculation in Read more →

  • Southeastern States Headed Up, But Still Have Room to Grow with Energy Efficiency

    Cleanenergy.org By Natalie Mims Yesterday, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy released its seventh annual State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. The annual report ranks states on their policy and program efforts, and provides recommendations for ways in which states can improve their energy efficiency performance. As you can see from the national map, the Southeast is still lagging behind, with North Carolina as the only state that ranks among the top half of the country. However, there is definitely some good news to share as well. Mississippi fared quite well this year, and was named one of the year’s Read more →

  • Alabama Wind Farm Foes Plagiarize Loser Lawsuit

    Cleanenergy.org By Simon Mahan Alabama is a hotbed for wind farm development. Pioneer Green Energy, a Texas-based company with decades of experience developing wind projects across the country, is proposing the Noccalula and Shinbone wind projects in Alabama. These projects would create hundreds of jobs and generate hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for the local municipalities through new tax revenue. Yet, the vast benefits of wind energy are not appreciated by everyone and a small, vocal minority oppose any and all wind farms – even the ones not in their own back yards. To kill the Alabama’s first two Read more →
