Citizens in Opposition to the Fountain Wind Project

The purpose of the CIO FWP is to promote the safety, health, and cultural welfare of the affected Intermountain communities, and surrounding areas, by exposing how the negative impacts of the Fountain Wind Project far outweigh the claimed benefits. Wind energy is not as clean and green as advertised.

Communities around the World are dealing with the negative impacts and pushing back on big wind projects to get them stopped in their areas. The CIO FWP community meetings will provide documented information where communities are putting restrictions in place, such as in some areas of LA and San Bernardino counties, to ban large turbine wind development where the electrical demand is greater. The turbines proposed for the Fountain Wind Project would be some of the tallest in the United States.

Studies show that wind power is not as green as previously thought and its energy generation is unpredictable. It is an intrusive industrialization of rural and wild areas which require extensive expansion of transmission lines. The wind turbines add noise, light, visual pollution, destroy and fragment wildlife habitat and wetlands, destroy sacred cultural resources and history, cause health issues, increase wildfire risks, add instability and inefficiencies to the electrical grid, and increased energy rates. These wind projects are subsidized by taxpayers for the benefit of Big Wind and continue to divide communities.

The on-going CIO FWP meetings will provide updates regarding the Shasta County Fountain Wind Project, invite local community representatives and news outlets to hear and post community objections, provide updates to the Stop Wind Web page, and distribute informational Newsletters in an effort to expose the truth and stop the Fountain Wind Project.

Get informed regarding the negative impacts of wind energy. We can’t let the infusion of a few dollars by Big Wind into the local community destroy its character and put us all at risk.
