Kincardine rushes to provide input to Quixote One wind project

Confusion around the deadline for comments on the Quixote One wind project had Kincardine council scrambling to make a decision on what to submit last week.

During last Wednesday’s meeting, council was unclear on whether the deadline to submit comments to the project’s developers, Leader Resources Services Corp. is March 31 or April 30. The Quixote One project is a single 2.5 megawatt industrial wind turbine project north of Kincardine, near Tiverton. The project received a FIT contract in July 2011. The final public meeting was held on Feb. 21.

“I think we need a discussion at council of what our comments will be,” said deputy mayor Anne Eadie, and suggested that council should hold a special meeting if need be.

“We don’t want to miss it and we need our comments ready to go.”

Others around the council table stated that they would be happy submitting comments similar to those sent to Pattern Renewable Holdings and Samsung Renewable Energy for the Armow Wind Project.

“Given the length of the process we went through with the last one, I’m comfortable with the (legal) advice we got,” said councillor Candy Hewitt. “That should be the basis for what we do going forward.”

Councillor Randy Roppel said staff should find out what the exact deadline is and request an extension from the province if one is needed. He questioned why the issue is just coming before council now.

“We were obsessed with the other one (Armow) and we weren’t paying attention to the smaller one,” said mayor Larry Kraemer.

Council agreed to direct municipal staff to craft a letter to Leader, using the letter to Samsung and Pattern as a guideline, and have it ready for the April 3 council meeting.
