Ohio setbacks will change SIGNIFICANTLY without your immediate help!

Here they come again, and this time it looks like they might win. Ohio Republican Senator Dolan and others are coming for your property rights!

Current setbacks are about 1,300 ft. from your property line. They are set to be reduced to about 550 ft. or 1.2x the height of the neighboring turbine.

All of this legislation will happen through SB238, HB114, or an amendment to one or the other. It's honestly hard to keep up as they keep playing a shell game to make it confusing for us while they posture for the best chance of ramming the legislation through.

This time it looks like they have the votes to get it done. More and more senators and representatives are falling in line with Big Wind and lining up against you and I.

What You Should Do:

We are asking everyone to call their House Representatives and Senators NOW to object to any legislation reducing property line setbacks. Find your representatives using this link - https://www.legislature.ohio.gov/legisl…/find-my-legislators

You should state - “I oppose any bill or amendment to allow a wind developer to take my land. All setbacks should be measured from the property line without exception. Zoning begins at my property line not my front door. Current property line setback distances should be maintained as minimums. Giving wind developers the right to trespass on my land strips away my property rights and will burden my family for generations.”

PLEASE MAKE YOUR CALLS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! ASK YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS TO MAKE CALLS. FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR LOCAL CONTACTS. THE SENATE NEEDS TO HEAR US.

Logan County Commissioners
DO NOT GRANT THE PILOT!

It's a bad deal for Logan County!

See for yourself using these spreadsheets that were developed using data from the Ohio Department of Taxation & the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.  Download the the Logan County No PILOT/PILOT Spreadsheet to see just how much tax revenue will be lost with the PILOT and also download the Government Subsidy Spreadsheet to see how much subsidies wind projects receive.
