Wind turbine foes to speak  

AMHERSTBURG – Residents opposed to a proposed wind energy farm in the former Malden Township are going before Amherstburg town council tonight to ask the town to impose setback requirements for the giant wind turbines.

Bill Anderson and with his wife Maureen have been leading a charge against a plan by Toronto-based GenGrowth wind energy company to build five wind turbines on Concession 6 and Middle Sideroad, will speak to council for five minutes tonight.

Anderson said this is just the first of 18 projects proposed for Essex County.

He said in California wind turbines can’t be built within three kilometres of residential areas. In Europe, he added, they are now banned from land areas and are only allowed in the ocean.

Anderson said people who have lived near wind turbines are kept awake by the noise and suffer health problems.
