Bluewater council’s tentative agreement with Nextera Energy will be discussed at Monday night’s council meeting. Mayor Tyler Hessel says council has some concerns with the Vibrancy Agreement as it’s currently proposed. Hessel says the current agreement is dramatically different from the original in that it offers a payment of $2,500 per kilowatt instead of the original offer of $3,500. As well, it includes a stipulation that Nextera is now able to terminate the agreement for any reason with 15 days . . . Complete story »

Wind farm pile work set to start amid water worries

The Otter Creek wind farm proposed for north of Wallaceburg will begin installing and testing piles at three turbine locations starting next week. The pile testing makes residents in the Wallaceburg area nervous because many people believe pile-driving vibration in other areas in Chatham-Kent during wind turbine construction has led to a large number of water wells becoming black with turbid water and contaminated with heavy metals. Pile testing is set to take place outside of Wallaceburg at three different . . . Complete story »

Residents now dealing with frozen tanks

Residents near the North Kent Wind project found themselves without their temporary water source over the holidays because of bitter cold temperatures, Several water wells in the project area –under construction by Samsung Renewable Energy and Pattern Energy – were clogged with sediments shortly after pile-driving took place for constructing the turbines. But Jessica Brooks, who lives on Brook Line with husband Paul, is now dealing with a frozen exterior tank, installed last summer as an interim solution. “New Year’s . . . Complete story »

Clearview decision on wind turbines set precedent: pilot

Planes and wind turbines don’t mix. In August, the Environmental Review Tribunal upended the renewable energy approvals for a proposed eight-tower wind turbine project in Clearview after nearly a decade of protests by neighbours, and the objections of both township council and Collingwood because of the turbines’ proximity to the regional airport. In February 2016, the director of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change approved the REA for WPD Canada’s Fairview Wind project. Resident John Wiggins was first to . . . Complete story »

Conservatives would change landscape in C-K

Nicholls noted the current Green Energy Act would be scrapped if Brown is permitted to govern Ontario. “We're not against green (energy), but it's got to be affordable energy,” he said. “We know the cost for these industrial wind turbines and the price that people are paying to subsidize these industrial wind turbines, is driving the prices of hydro up.” Complete story »

A Holiday season spent reading ‘worthless pile’ of turbine documents

Good morning, Ms. Wynne. First off, thanks for taking the time to read my last letter to you and getting back to me. That said, I still have not heard back from Mr. Ballard nor Mr. Thibeault, nor did you answer my two questions. I acknowledge that my last letter was a tad long and that you may not have had the time to read the whole thing, and as such I am re-asking my two questions and await your . . . Complete story »

Chatham-area wind turbine fight could end up in court

After months of vigorously fighting a wind farm he and others blame for destroying their water quality, Peter Hensel acknowledges he’s running out of options. “I think the only avenue really left is a class action law suit,” Hensel said in an interview with Farmers Forum. “We’ve tried to settle it peacefully and everything else and nobody listens or cares,” he said. Currently under construction and scheduled to start producing power by February 2018, the North Kent Wind 1 farm . . . Complete story »

Fighting words in Milford

Experience is something you get right after you need it. On the heels of a potent, jam-packed rally in Milford to implore the government to pack up its turbines and go home, the bitter aftertaste and lingering sting of feeling deceived and betrayed remains ours to mourn and avenge. When you think about it, the optics of investing in wind turbines can be construed as a patriotic opportunity to demonstrate support for green energy when better options may exist, but . . .
