Engineer responds to Denning windmill controversy

Sherret E. Chase

A critical date is the evening of December 3 with the Ulster County Planning Board. Please voice your support to the board (planning@co.ulster.ny.us) for this one small wind turbine electric generator as a relatively harmless demonstration project for the Town of Denning. Then the Town Zoning Board of Appeals (townhall@denning.us) meets on December 11 for the final review and (we hope) permission.

I am the engineer/installation contractor for this project and have been working with wind energy for several decades. My oldest nearby machine is 28 years in operation in the central Catskills with no objections from neighbors. Please share your support with a copy to me, sherretec@gmail.com.
