It is -9, with the windchill it feels like -16. Ontario has 413mw of wind capacity. At 1pm the four wind-farms in Ontario are generating at 4.6% of their rated capacity. Not too impressive.
When the Ontario govt. or the wind industry tell you that a wind farm has the capacity to power x number of homes they are stretching the truth to the absolute extreme. A wind farm has the capacity to power x number of homes only when it is running at maximum output. I have yet to see this happen.
As you can see 4.6% output is a very long way from 100% output.
The govt. plans to back up wind by building natural gas plants.
What is the most price sensitive fuel right now and into the future?
This McGinty, Duncan policy is not only going to drive up electricity prices it will also cost thousands of manufacturing jobs.
It is time for every voter in Ontario to start asking some hard questions and demanding answers to the McGinty, Duncan energy policy.
This is without a doubt, the most flawed energy policy ever presented to the Ontario consumer.
Who will pay for this disaster.
YOU and your CHILDREN.
