Wind farm firm states case to residents

The proposed Collie Hill Wind Farm near Hastings is just one of the small-scale projects Energy Farming Ontario hopes to build in Ontario, company director Kelly Campbell said this week.

“We look at small projects diversified across Ontario,” Campbell said during an open house Monday at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre. “That has always been our vision of how we want to develop these wind projects, just small, locally-generated electricity. We don’t do large, industrial scale projects with dozens of turbines.”

Campbell said the open house was held to introduce residents to the new scaled-back project under the renewable energy approval process.

Energy Farming Ontario held a public open house last year to propose a project with 10 wind turbines. The Collie Hill project has since been scaled back to three turbines, in part because of the new increased minimum setbacks, but also because of revised power calculations provided by Hydro One, Campbell said.

The company’s project overview, available online at energyfarmingontario.com, says the plan is to build up to three 1.8-megawatt wind turbines on privately-owned land in Asphodel-Norwood Township near Hastings.
