Wind resistance

There’s no shortage of wind blowing across the Great Lakes. Turning that wind into energy could be a big step towards lowering carbon emissions in the region. And despite plenty of studies showing vast energy potential, the Great Lakes still don’t have any offshore turbines. That could soon change. A first-of-its-kind project has been approved for Lake Erie: six turbines, eight miles from the Cleveland shoreline. But it hasn’t come easy. Public opposition is the biggest barrier to building wind . . . Complete story »

Concerns over wind turbines continue despite no new applications

Eganville – Concerns over the impact of wind turbines are continuing for local researcher Carmen Krogh, despite the fact no new wind farm applications have been submitted locally. “I have been told by some they are likely coming to Renfrew County,” she told BV council last Tuesday. “I don’t have proof of that.” A local researcher into the effects of wind turbines, she has been widely published and has spoken internationally on the subject for years, warning about the dangers . . .

More well water investigation needed: expert

It was my pleasure to participate as a member of the expert panel on the recent All-Hazard Investigation of Well Water in Chatham-Kent. The expert panel provided advice and expertise for the investigation of well water from within the North Kent 1 industrial wind complex where some residents had raised concerns regarding water quality, during and following wind turbine construction. The Expert Panel’s Final Report was made public earlier this year as reported in the Chatham Voice (April 20). The . . . Complete story »

Ohio wind ruling starts storm of opposition

During a meeting inside the Dunkirk Lighthouse in May 2019, volunteers learned of a project that could forever change the landscape of Lake Erie while offering the promise of $500 in revenue monthly. All that needed to happen was for an approval of a wind monitoring station at the historic site. Desperate for cash, the Lighthouse could have taken the funds being offered at the time by Diamond Offshore Wind. But members of the board of directors sided with history, . . . Complete story »

Nation Rise Wind Farm opponents address Roumeliotis, EOHU board

Mekker and McRae in their talk spoke about the World Health Organization 2009 report on noise guidelines, and that Health Canada describes noise annoyance as an adverse human health effect. They said studies and data show that for chronically strong annoyance, a causal chain exists – sleep disturbance, sleep deprivation, cascading and deleterious adverse health outcomes, and increased morbidity. “Simply put, the noise which doesn’t stop unless the turbines stop, is an annoyance (leading to serious issues),’’ Mekker said. Mekker and McRae were invited to the meeting by the EOHU. Complete story »

Ohio court ruling backs turbines in Lake Erie

An Ohio Supreme Court has affirmed the placement of wind turbines in Lake Erie as part of the Icebreaker wind project off the shores of Cleveland. By a 6-1 margin on Wednesday, the justices ruled the power siting board employed “a flexible standing in granting the requested certificate (that) poses no legal problem.” For now, that decision allows the first freshwater offshore wind-powered electric-generation facility in North America to move forward. That plan includes a six-turbine wind-powered electric-generation facility on . . . Complete story »
