Opening Can of Whoop Ass on Wind Company in Atlantic City

Wind energy company, Atlantic Shores, needs to dig up parts of Atlantic City. Atlantic Shores Wind plans to install miles of underground and underwater, electric transmission lines.

Were minority residents of Atlantic City properly informed of this town hall? That question was raised during the Atlantic Shores WIND public hearing, July 27 at Atlantic City City Hall.

See video.

Atlantic Shores asking for control of:

  • 2 acres of prime AC beach & boardwalk.
  • Portion of Bader Field.
  • Portion of Pete Pallitto Playground.

‘Thousands of residents with little or no knowledge of what Atlantic Shores WIND (and ORSTED) is bringing. I can only assume you have not reached out to the minority population. Yet, you’re coming here to take their parks, recreation areas, beaches and streets. ‘

Wind project will disproportionally affect inner city. Much higher electric rates and harmful power transmission lines buried under their kid’s playgrounds and beaches.

AC Councilmen Kaleem Shabazz and Sporty Randolph both may have suggested it was ‘racist’ to discuss why local minorities were not properly represented at this critical WIND TURBINE meeting.

Stop making everything about race. Why isn’t the local community here?Public comment.

Protect Our Coast NJ

Atlantic Shores says their wind project is at risk without additional NJ taxpayer funding.

Michael Butler: Industrialization of sea coast is a terrible idea! Wind turbines require enormous amount of energy to produce and operate. Coastal environment is harsh – reducing turbine’s lifespan to less than estimated 20 yrs. Reliable, cost effective energy from offshore wind is wishful thinking.

Local media is feeding everybody garbage. News about wind and whales is so inaccurate.Atlantic City resident.

Residents of Atlantic City being kept in the dark about harmful affects of living near powerlines. Electro-magnetic fields running under AC playgrounds, beaches, boardwalk and other public spaces.


Atlantic City Wind Turbines Kill Whales

Protect Our Coast NJ and Defend Brigantine Beach filed lawsuit seeking to overturn law that gave the Ørsted wind company, $1 billion in taxpayer funded relief.

NJ Legislature recently sided with Danish wind company ORSTED.

NJ giving ORSTED a billion dollars in tax credits. This allows ØRSTED to ignore commitment to build offshore wind farm with it’s own cash.

Orsted’s Ocean Wind 1 features 100 wind turbines at 1,000 ft. high, just off the Jersey shoreline.

Electricity generated from the turbines comes ashore via array of power cables buried just beneath public areas. (beach, boardwalk, playground)

After recent NJ tax break for Orsted Wind was approved, Atlantic Shores Wind now demanding tax breaks too.

Industrialization of the ocean. Offshore construction will, no doubt, harm local tourism and fishing.

Historic rate of marine mammal deaths in New Jersey and New York.

Ørsted and NJ Gov Murphy have a real expensive fight on their hands. Lawsuits are piling up.

    Too bad Whoop Ass won’t help to cut CO2 emissions. Turbines will add to the effort to cut fossil fuel use and to save the Earth.
