Current put into ground a big concern
Headline: “State should not sacrifice rural health for wind energy projects” as seen in The Cap Times on Feb. 29. Will the Public Service Commission continue to promote dangerous utility practices and sacrifice Wisconsin rural health for big wind profits?
Electrical pollution tests conducted by Dave Stetzer at the Shirley Wind Project in Brown County reveal electrical pollution levels to be severely unsafe, not meeting the standards of the World Health Organizations and the Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineers.
By law, utilities are allowed to dump 70 percent of the neutral current into the ground, creating deadly health effects that are amplified by wind turbine generation. Had the Electrical Bill of Rights passed in 2003, it would be illegal. But because of the successful lobbying efforts of the utilities and wind developers, legislators turned a blind eye to the harm caused by such electrical dumping on an already-undersized grid.
