Turbines out of scale

As a resident of East Point I would like to comment on IRAC hearing P.E.I. Energy versus the Rural Municipality of Eastern Kings (RMEK) in regard to the denial by council of the special permit application to add seven more wind turbines. Steven Myers, who was minister of Transportation, Energy and Infrastructure in September 2019, said “I don’t want to leave it in the air that there’s a possibility that we’re not going there.” And, “We think the whole project’s . . .

Company not giving up on its proposed wind farm in SE Alberta

The company behind one of the longest standing proposals to build a wind farm in southeast Alberta says it will resubmit plans next month for the Peace Butte Wind project next month. Pteragen Canada was told last month by provincial utility regulators that considering the length of time since it received construction approvals for the planned turbine field near Seven Persons, its permits would be rescinded. The head of the company, Carlo Plava of Renovalia Energy, told the News on . . . Complete story »

IRAC hears appeal for 30-megawatt wind farm rejected by rural P.E.I. council

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – The P.E.I. Energy Corporation (PEIEC) says a municipality went against its own bylaws when denying a 30-megawatt wind farm expansion. “This was a very technical application that was placed before this small, rural municipality, and they should have reached out to specialists,” the PEIEC’s lawyer Gordon MacKay said on Friday. In October 2020, the council of Eastern Kings voted 3-1 against an application for a seven-turbine wind farm in its region. The application has been in the works . . . Complete story »

An open letter to the Ontario government: I write to you to share my concerns on the neglect people living in industrial wind turbine projects are experiencing. No government at any level seems to care. You all hide behind “the contracts.” Pieces of paper. You would rather honour contracts signed with the big businesses of industrial wind than caring for the lives that matter. We signed unwilling host petitions before those contracts were signed. Why do our pieces of paper . . . Complete story »

IRAC to decide whether proposed Eastern Kings wind farm expansion should go ahead

After its proposal to build more wind turbines in Eastern Kings last fall was denied, the P.E.I. Energy Corporation is arguing for the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission to overturn that decision. The corporation runs the province’s wind farms and wanted to add seven wind turbines to the 10 that already exist in the municipality of Eastern Kings, east of Souris. “The wind farm, the purpose of it is to provide clean renewable electricity to Islanders and to ensure our . . .

Regional wind farm will have to restart approval process

Alberta power regulators have told the developer of a wind farm near Seven Persons that after 15 years, its plans will have to be resubmitted for new approval. The Peace Butte Wind Farm was one of the first utility-scale wind farms proposed in southeast Alberta in 2006. Though approved, construction has yet to commence as the company behind the project, Pteragen Canada, said it was waiting for the right market conditions in the changing green energy sector. As is common, . . . Complete story »

MARY’S – Councillors for the Municipality of the District of St. Mary’s raised questions at their committee of the whole meeting last week about the status of a major energy projected for the Strait area, tentatively slated to begin construction next year. In February, Port Hawkesbury Paper (PHP) announced that it had “directly funded” the installation of two meteorological towers as crucial steps to building a 112-megawatt wind farm at Pirate Harbour in Guysborough County.

Leanna Brodie continues work on wind turbine-centric play

When she started tackling a play about the strife caused by wind turbines in rural communities, accomplished playwright Leanna Brodie signed on for some intense situations. From interviews to the writing process to inner turmoil caused by the research to even losing a life-long friend because of the play, she says the entire experience has been dramatically different from her previous experiences. Before tackling the research for the play, which included interviewing people in Huron County, Brodie had a strong . . . Complete story »

Council’s proposed wind bylaw requires some changes

To the council of the Municipality of Pictou County regarding the proposed wind bylaw: The power production of the existing wind turbines in Pictou County is more than sufficient to provide all the electricity of its inhabitants. The problem is the intermittency of the wind and the storage of the produced electricity. To achieve power self-sufficiency we should invest in photovoltaic power and in ways to store electricity (battery, pump stations, etc.) and of course, in using less. By allowing . . .
