PostSubject: Fraud and Wind Power, Where is Law Enforcement and the County Attorney   Tue Feb 23, 2010 10:48 pm

In the last few weeks I have had a number of citizens complain that representatives from agents of wind power have falsely indicated that the party I am talking to is the last to sign up and other similiar misrepresentations.

In reality they have later learned that this is a common tactic of these companies. Many of these companies but up the windpower rights cheap and sell to foreign investors for a gigantic profit.

This site promotes a number of reputable windpower representatives that have ties to this area.

Please be careful and do not fall for the hard sell. The correct way is to listen and then consult with an attorney.

You should also report the fraud to local law enforcement.

The other day at the radio crackerbarrel all the reps were pro wind, but State Sen. Jim Peterson warned that there are speculators out there who will never put up a turbine or a transmission pole themselves, they are speculators who will turn around and sell your land rights to another company.

Boy, that's sure something to keep in mind when the dollar signs make your head go light. It should remind people that the contract itself is important.
I had a friend on Martha's Vineyard who owned 75 acres of undeveloped property (she was a former WW II WAF and had built a dirt runway and some campsites on it, living in an Army surplus quanset hut and flying her Army surplus small plane). She and her partner signed a 50-50 contract with a developer -- he was going to build a health club on her land and she was going to run it. Since there was no timeline specified, he had her land tied up indefinitely and after three years it became clear he had no intention of fulfilling the bargain. She sold the land to him and he put up much more lucrative condos. It was a real expensive lesson for her, having lived on that land for 40 years. The price he paid her for the land was fair, but it was a pittance compared to the millions he raked in cramming it with condos.
Yep, the contract matters. Thanks for sharing.
