I am well read on all the negativity about the benefits with the windmills. It seems funny that no one asks folks in Roxbury about Record Hill Wind's benefits.
I just got my 2011 tax bill reduced 65 percent, plus a stipend of $110 paid quarterly.
The turning windmills are working for the residents of Roxbury. I have not heard anyone willing to swap their benefits for a minuscule visual change to our mountains that most people don't look at anyway.
The windmills may not change the overall price of power, but certainly help to reduce oil capital going to the nation's enemies that use it to destroy U.S. interests around the world.
