Wind Concerns Ontario wants more from the province when it comes to testing wind turbine noise.
Group President Jane Wilson says the Ontario government is proposing only minor changes to measures for testing noise.
And she adds that measuring only audible noise from the turbines is not enough.
The group has sent a 22-page document to the government, detailed improvements it would like to see.
Jane Wilson says currently the government doesn’t do noise testing, instead it leaves that up to the company building the turbine developments.
She says that’s not right, and Wind Concerns Ontario is urging the government to take up this practice on it’s own.
She adds that there have been thousands of complaints about the affects of low level noise.
Wilson says she has also been following the appeal of the WPD Canada proposal for 8 wind turbines near the Collingwood Regional Airport.
She says it’s not a matter of if – but when – there will be an accident because of the close proximity of some of the turbines to the airport, affecting the flight path.
