VIDEO: Orsted Wind Turbines and Margate Homeowners Association

See video clips from April 25 Margate Homeowners Association town hall with ORSTED WIND. What are the pros and cons of offshore wind farms?

ORSTED is the Danish energy company hoping to install close to 100 wind turbines just off the coast of South Jersey.

Ready for South Jersey Offshore Wind Farms?

A forest of wind turbines over 800 ft high, will be built offshore between Atlantic City and Ocean City. Massive sub-stations will be situated closer to shore.

Concerns about:

  • Fishing
  • Cost to taxpayers.
  • View from beaches.
  • Still need fossil fuel?

Save Our Shoreline

Save Our Shoreline is a united group with one common goal… stop the wind turbines off of the New Jersey shoreline. Extremely concerned with the fast track development without comprehensive research detailing the true effects on New Jersey’s tourism, fisheries, wildlife and coastal communities. The burden of doubt is on the developers to prove without a reasonable doubt the projects will result in a net benefit. Yet routinely they will not answer specific questions raised by the public at wind meetings.

    According to some studies, the deployment of wind energy to at least 33% of the current global electricity generation will result in worse climate impacts than doubling the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Small wind turbines do not work in too strong winds, and a thunderstorm, hurricane or snowstorm can damage such a turbine.

    All this leads to the fact that if small wind farms pay off, then for a very long time. Despite mass production, the cost of building a modern wind farm is high.

    At the same time, wind farms, as a rule, extend over vast territories and are located at a distance from the consumer, which creates additional costs for energy transportation.

    Storing excess energy generated by wind turbines also requires additional solutions: batteries or converters to other types of energy. That is, in order to receive “free” wind energy, you first have to pay well, because the wind power plant has a high initial cost.

    Some researchers argue that wind turbines force some species of birds to change their migration routes, and who does not, risk being killed by turbine blades.

    For example, in the United States, according to the National Academy of Sciences of this country, from 20 thousand to 37 thousand birds die from them annually. There is a version that wind farms also harm people. So, many living nearby complain of constant noise.

    Wind turbines do generate noise comparable to that of a car traveling at 45 ml/h, which causes discomfort for people and scares away animals. Another unexpected feature of wind power plants manifested itself in the fact that they turned out to be a source of rather intense infrasonic noise that adversely affects the human body, causing a constant depression, strong causeless anxiety and life discomfort.

    As the experience of operating a large number of wind turbines in the United States has shown, neither animals nor birds can withstand this noise, leaving the area of ​​the station, that is, the territory of the wind station itself and adjacent to it becomes unsuitable for life.

    American pediatrician Nina Pierpont says that the proximity of wind turbines causes migraines, dizziness, anxiety, tachycardia, pressure in the ears and nausea in some people, as well as impairs vision and even digestion. She even identified the so-called “wind turbine syndrome” – the clinical name for a number of symptoms that are observed in many (but not all) people who live near industrial wind turbines.

    Low-frequency turbine noise stimulates the production of false signals in the inner ear system, which can lead to dizziness and nausea, as well as memory problems, anxiety and panic. Infrasound, due to its long wavelength, freely bypasses obstacles and can propagate over long distances without significant energy losses. Therefore, infrasound can be considered as a factor polluting the environment.

    Thus, if wind turbines generate infrasound, they are still not a clean source of energy, since they pollute the environment. And filtering out infrasound is much more difficult than normal sound. Even the slightest suspicion of such a negative impact on the Earth’s ecology requires additional research.

    This project can become a trap: more and more windmills will need to be built to increase profitability.

    Ventnor, Margate, Long Port are resorts. We don’t need to have windmills in front of our eyes.

  2. What an insult to associate my name with the Bidens . Obviously you are too confused or unable to understand what an open contract bid means or you are corrupt like most people caught in the swamp !!

  3. Why would you say I don’t know what an open contract bid is. I think my late father tried getting a DOD contract maybe twice in all his years in business. For the birds… No, I’m not confused. If you’d like to quiz me I’m in

    1. An American Company to enhance the American electrical grid does not seem to me to be a radical idea. But again I’m not a globalist . America first is what we all should understand is not a racist statement
