New wind turbines could threaten migratory birds 

Credit:  CBC News, www.cbc.ca 27 April 2012 ~~

Concerns about threats to migratory birds from the expansion of the wind farm in Eastern Kings will discussed when environment groups meet with P.E.I.’s energy minister Friday.

Members of the Natural History Society and Island Nature Trust are meeting with Wes Sheridan about how the plan to add up to another 15 turbines to the provincially-run wind farm might affect migratory birds.

Some of the new turbines could be at the eastern tip of the province, an area flagged during the first development, said Island Nature Trust’s executive director Jackie Waddell.

In 2006, the province agreed to change the location of six of the ten turbines, because of concerns in a report written by Bird Studies Canada.

In response to an email from the CBC News, the PEI Energy Corporation said that, if development goes ahead, none of the new turbines will be placed in the area identified in the report.

The corporation said it made that policy decision because of concerns for the migratory birds.
