Wind Towers Coming To Your Area? Be Involved & Stay Informed
The mission of The Truth About Turbines, LLC is to educate communities about the risks involved in allowing wind tower companies to build in our rural areas, allowing land owners to steal equity from their neighbors and ignoring the dangers that this alternative energy inflicts upon rural homeowners. We strive to equip local citizens with the information they need to protect their homesteads and provide the tools needed to properly discuss wind turbines at zoning and county commissioner meetings. We invite you to learn more about how wind towers may affect you if they are built near you.
