Bluewater Wind may interfere with Exeter Radar  

Credit:  February 12, 2013 | am920.ca ~~

Bluewater’s C-A-O told councillors at last night’s special council meeting that tests on the proposed Grand Bend Wind Energy Project indicated some problems with the Exeter Radar station.Steve McCauley explained that tests looked for any kind of interference with telecommunications near the turbines and the consultant found that there would be interference with the Exeter Radar.McAuley added Environment Canada confirmed those findings and said the two would not be able to co-exist without some form of mitigation.McAuley says suggestions for mitigation included the use of stealth turbine blades or turning the turbines off on days when Environment Canada needed to use the radar to issue weather warnings.McAuley added no agreement on mitigation has been reached at this time. McAuley also suggested the same problem would likely exist with the Goshen Energy Project.
