More wind companies scouting South Dundas

SOUTH DUNDAS – One of the many concerns held by South Branch Wind Opposition Group (SBWOG) is that Prowind Canada’s proposed 14-turbine wind farm will be but the first of many.

Reports have surfaced that another company has been scouting for land in South Dundas. Invenergy Canada’s Director of Business Development, James J. Murphy, confirmed the report on February 9th: “Invenergy has been working with some landowners to investigate the potential for a wind energy project, but these efforts are very preliminary.”

“As per company policy we do not identify landowners by name who have signed agreements with us,” said Murphy.

At the January 17th South Dundas council meeting, Councillor Archie Mellan declared a conflict of interest when it came time to discuss requests made by SBWOG. In an e-mail to The Leader on February 11th, Mellan explained the conflict of interest.

“As to your questions, I will not go into details as it is a private matter of my personal business. It is a land lease agreement for a possible project. We, my brother and myself, decided to go ahead after much research and questions before I had decided to even run in the last municipal election. Invenergy was the only company that approached us as they are the ones who are looking at this area for their proposed project.”

Invenergy, one of the largest companies of its kind in the United States, has a headquarters in Chicago, Illinois and local Canadian offices in both Toronto and Montreal.

According to their website, “Invenergy and its affiliated companies develop, own and operate large-scale renewable and other clean energy generation facilities in North America and Europe.”
