Time to talk about wind farms  

A pre-hearing is set for today in Kincardine.

At hand is the issue of a proposed 110 wind farm by Enbridge Ontario.

It will be held at 11am in Kincardine in Council’s Chambers.

Enbridge Kincardine General Manager Bob Simpson says those against the farm will offer reasons, issues and details as to why.

Simpson says a witness list from both sides will be exchanged as well; from that a time for how long an entire hearing would take will be established.

Kincardine council approved the project back in September of 2006, and WAG, the Windfarm Action Group has been against the project since the idea was brought up.

In August, Enbridge agreed to a property line setback for the wind turbine proposal, paving the way for council in Kincardine to agree with the plan.

Originally the plan included wind turbines to be erected in Saugeen Shores as well, but those were dropped in August of last year.

As it stands now, the project calls for 110 wind turbines to be erected on 102 lots in Kincardine at a cost of over 4 hundred million dollars.
