SARNIA – Opponents of the government-approved Zephyr wind farm project near Watford will take their case to Ontario’s Environmental Review Tribunal.
A preliminary hearing to appeal the project will be held Dec. 22 in Wyoming. The next hearing is scheduled Jan. 11.
The Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group (WAG) filed the appeal in the wake of government approval for the $22-million, four-turbine, 10-MW wind farm. Green Breeze Energy Inc. is currently building the farm’s infrastructure near Churchill Line between Ebenezer and Walnut roads.
WAG member Esther Wrightman says the group is demanding a proper health study before the government goes through with wind energy projects.
The province released a report Friday asserting wind turbines cause no direct health effects past a regulated distance. The study was conducted by HGC Engineering and then reviewed by three independent noise experts.
