Frustration builds in Lakeshore as turbines creep closer to residential areas

Lakeshore mayor Tom Bain isn’t happy the province overturned council’s vote to turn down dozens of new wind turbines.

There are 109 turbines Lakeshore now and another 43 are slated to go up near the Puce and Emeryville area.

“We feel they’re starting to encroach on residential areas and we’ve had our share,” said Bain.

Companies work around the municipality by communicating directly with landowners who received between $8,000 and $12,000 per year for allowing one of the turbines on their property.

“The say that we once had we no long have,” the mayor explained. “Unfortunately the municipality isn’t properly informed of where those turbines will be going, we’re just told the general area.”

​Bain said the construction does bring some positives to the region, including jobs to build and maintain the structures and some tax revenue.
