Looking at wind energy

Meaford Council won’t blow over for wind farm developers like International Power Corporation of Toronto.

Deputy Mayor Harley Greenfield expects council to set up an ad hoc committee solely dedicated to studying wind and solar energy.

It comes as IPC continues their “Silcote Corners Wind project” which would see 29 wind turbines erected in the area between Annan and Balaclava.

Greenfield is hopeful a resolution is passed for an ad hoc committee at Monday’s Council meeting.

The committee would look into all aspects of wind and solar energy production both for and against.

Meantime, Greenfield says council still hasn’t heard back from IPC about their next public meeting and if IPC will conduct it in a “town hall’ style forum.

Council formally requested a more open meeting from IPC back in early January following their first meeting in November, which Greenfield says left residents with more questions than answers.

IPC’s second public meeting required under the Green Energy Act goes sometime this Spring.

Much like Arran Elderslie, Meaford recently put a moratorium on wind turbine development, although Greenfield admits it holds little weight when put up against the Province’s Green Energy Act.

He says the moratorium is more of a symbolic message than anything else.
