Cost of turbines

My rant for today and if you are offended by this, good. That just means you’re part of the problem. To the greedy landowners of North Stormont. Thank you for allowing the hostile takeover of our township by the foreign companies driving the Nation Rise Wind Turbine project. The money they make will not be staying in Canada. So because you can’t see past the dollar signs we will all directly suffer from these turbines. Have you considered the costs . . . Complete story »

UN notified of dirty CK well water

A London-area geologist says she has reported the dirty water wells in Chatham-Kent to the United Nations. Heather Gingerich says local and provincial leaders are treasonous by allowing the wind turbine assault on local water. However, she says the likelihood the U.N. will do anything is small unless the community fully backs the move to stop pile driving wind towers into the ground. Gingerich is not affiliated with the U.N. but is a medical geologist and calls on hospitals to . . . Complete story »

Stop wind farms from polluting wells

How would you react if one day you turned on your tap and murky, black water came out? Would you keep using the water, hoping that it would clear up? Would you call the city and complain? What if the city did nothing to help you? Well, this is happening in many parts of rural Ontario, and especially in Chatham-Kent. The only difference is that it’s not tap water, but well water – many people’s only source for drinking, bathing and . . . Complete story »

If the Ontario Liberals don’t return to power after the June 7 election, a local citizen group will be well positioned to get some action on their concerns over water wells in the north Chatham-Kent area. With less than a month before Ontarians go to the polls, Water Wells First has received a written commitment from the leaders of four political parties – The Progressive Conservatives, the New Democrats, the Green Party and the Trillium Party – a health hazard . . .

Beeckmans: Energiewende, Germany’s troubled energy policy

Germany’s gargantuan commitment to renewable energy (30,000-plus wind turbines and the world’s third-largest solar capacity) is intended to point the way to a sustainable low-carbon future. This comprehensive energy policy was consolidated in 2010 and termed the “energiewende,” meaning energy turning. It set a number of ambitious targets, including a reduction of 40 per cent in greenhouse gas emissions from the 1990 level by 2020, and 70 per cent by 2040. Also, after Japan’s Fukushima disaster, it was decided to . . . Complete story »

Simcoe-Grey MPP puts forward one last bill before legislature dissolves

Simcoe-Grey’s provincial representative will try one more time to get Liberal government to give municipalities more planning power when it comes to dealing with green energy projects. However, with days to go before the lieutenant-governor dissolves the legislature ahead of the June 7 provincial election, Jim Wilson said introducing a bill now is about making a point on principle. On April 26, he reintroduced his Private Member’s Bill, the Restoring Planning Powers to Municipalities Act, which would return authority to . . . Complete story »

One bad blade at wind farm wipes out $6 million for TerraForm

A single faulty blade at an Ontario wind farm proved costly for TerraForm Power Inc. When the part failed in January at the company’s Raleigh wind farm, TerraForm took 70 turbines that used the same type of blade out of service to identify the problem. That ate up about $6 million in cash that otherwise would have been available for distribution to shareholders, TerraForm said in a statement Tuesday after the close of regular trading.
