This could be your home if you live in rural Ontario
The Enbridge wind farm Kincardine
115 turbines being erected right now
Today at 8 am the 472MWs of wind energy in Ontario were producing 8Mws
Energy you can never count on
The Enron scam continues
Below is a video from the Suncor wind farm, Ripley Ontario. Since the video was made several families moved out of their homes because of the noise. Suncor has shut down some of the turbines so the people could move home.
Bigger setbacks are required.
A councilor who voted for the wind farm in Ripley, and has at least one turbine on the property, has been forced to leave the farm after suffering headaches, nosebleeds and sleep disturbances caused by the wind turbines. The closest turbine to the home is 700 meters.
Maybe that’s a form of poetic justice.
The Ripley council was warned about the negative affects that would occur if the turbines were within 1km of homes. Evidence suggests a setback of 1mile or 1.5km is required as a buffer between a home and a turbine.
Most setbacks in Ontario range from 300 – 450 meters.
How many families have to suffer, before the govt. wakes up to the reality that wind turbines are being placed too close to homes.
Or do they even care?
This also happened at the Port Burwell Wind farm, severe headaches and nosebleeds. The result, the family was bought out by the developer.
Wherever wind farms have been erected in Ontario, both people and animals are suffering from both noise and stray voltage.
I got a call from a farmer the other day, who says the feet on his bull are burnt because of stray voltage, he also lost many calves last spring.
The MOE in Ontario continues to allow new wind farms while refusing to call for a health study or require realistic setbacks.
The bastardization of Ontario continues unabated
