Planned wind turbines in South Cayuga causes debate

As the number of wind farms increases in Ontario, so does the controversy that surrounds them. It seems people either love them or hate them.

If all goes to plan for Samsung CT, the company will build and operate a wind and solar cluster in South Cayuga.

The Grand Renewable Energy Park is one of 184 planned renewable energy projects for Ontario. It will include a wind facility with 63 wind turbines and a 700 acre facility.

William Colterman, a South Cayuga resident, is a vocal opponent of wind farms.

He said he believes more research is needed into the effects of wind turbines on human health.

Colterman said the main problem is the setback distance from turbine to receptor (the people living near a turbine). In Ontario, the setback is 550 metres.
