Federal PTC on WWR, Trump and Turbines, Nantucket Wins


Wind Wise Radio Talks about the Takedown of the Federal PTC

Lisa Linowes and Julie Johnson will be the guests on tonight’s program.  7-8pm ET.  April 1st, 2012

These two courageous and dedicated women have led the fight which has defeated the efforts of the Wind Developers to reinstate the expiring Production Tax Credits four times in as many weeks.

Lisa Linowes is the founder and Executive Director of the Industrial Wind Action (IWA) Group, a national advocacy group  focused on the impact/benefits analysis and policy issues associated with industrial wind energy development. She is an expert on the impacts of industrial-scale wind energy development on the natural environment, communities, and the regional grid systems

Lisa has presented and debated wind energy issues at numerous venues across the United States. She has appeared on CNN, NPR, and the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, as well as in the New York Times, Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, and dozens of smaller newspapers across the nation.

Julie Johnson is a founding member of Union Neighbors United (UNU) which was organized to advocate for safe setbacks when Everpower Wind’s Buckeye Wind Project first came to light.  It turned out her local Township Trustees and Zoning Board had known about the project and been working to facilitate it beginning in 2006. Julie has now been working for six years on local, state and federal IWT issues.
