Landowners with leases for turbines shouldn’t face ire of neighbors

To all of the windmill opponents, if you don’t like windmills or want to see them, I can respect that. Although some of the reasons for being against them are totally irrational.

Apex Energy hasn’t forced or coerced anyone into signing a lease agreement. People need to respect their neighbor’s decision to participate if they want to.

A landowner who pays their taxes should be able to utilize their land as they see fit.

People need to look at the tax base and realize the benefit to everyone.
