Norfolk Friends of Wind Power


"We love our wind turbines. They are a part of our existential adventure. We all know that it is better to exist than not to exist." from musings by Bob, the Clear Creek sage.

Come to Clear Creek. Tap into the Power.






Wind turbines are friendly creatures. They reach into the sky, like the cathedrals of old, churning out electricity for our daily needs. What is more useful than electricity?  It has liberated man from the drudgery of daily toil, creating whole new tribes and cultures and enabling them to do nothing but sit in front of their televisions, consume and complain.

"When those windmills turn in the sunlight they create new patterns of art. They are so approachable and talk to me, and if I were tall enough, I would shake their vanes." musings of Bob, the Clear Creek sage.

Norfolk Friends of Wind Power believe in harvesting the wind.


Serene, majestic, peaceful: production of electricity

Most people in Norfolk and those who live in the area where the turbines are located have applauded this development. A small, but vocal minority, many new to the area, have complained from the beginning, first about birds, then health, now property values. There is a renovation and building boom around "where the turbines toil" that hasn't been seen in the area since pioneer times.
Testimonial: "We haven't had a single complaint about (the 4 dozen odd) turbines in my jurisdiction, that I'm aware of." from a conversation with the mayor of Bayham Township. The words in brackets are supplied for clarity.
