The forecast calls for more wind power in Sarnia-Lambton

SARNIA – Ten wind turbines are up and running in Lambton County and plans are in the works for up to 300 more.

Sky Generation built the county’s first six turbines in 2008 near Forest and has added four more since, and other developers have announced proposals for several more wind farms.

A dozen or more local projects with generation capacity totalling almost 500 megawatts (MW) are on the Ontario Power Authority list of projects waiting for Hydro One to open additional capacity on the grid.

In all, they could theoretically lead to 300 more turbines in the county.

They include the 230-MW Jericho Wind Energy Centre that Nextra Energy Canada plans for Lambton Shores, and Suncor Energy’s 70-MW Camlachie-Cedar Point Wind Farm on the books for Lambton Shores, Enniskillen Township and Plympton-Wyoming.

One of the longest-standing proposals on the books in Lambton County is the Sydenham Wind Energy Centre slated for the townships of Dawn-Euphemia and Brooke-Alvinston, and neighbouring Chatham-Kent.

That project is opposed by a group of neighbours that formed the Dawn-Euphemia Chapter of Wind Concerns of Ontario. They’ve asked the Ontario government for a moratorium on new wind farms and an independent study of their impact on human health, “so we can rest in peace that these things are being done right,” said group member Stewart Lewis.

Finally, Green Breeze Energy Inc., recently announced plans for a four-turbine wind farm in Brooke-Alvinston.

Township Mayor Don McGugan said opinion on wind power is split in his community.

“If people can prove to me, and show to me, that there is not a health hazard, I don’t have a problem with them,” he said.
