Wind Turbines Being Erected All Over Rural Ontario – Destroying Lives and Property Values


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

WOW!

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.

YET

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

    To Whom It May Concern:
    More people should be concerned with property value associated with industrial wind turbines adjacent to their homes. Should their health become an issue and they can’t live near turbines anymore, who is going to buy their property?

    From Green Backlash: The Wind Turbine Controversy :
    As the nation rushes to add renewable energy to its power portfolio, a growing chorus of homeowners and others are expressing concerns about how industrial wind projects are affecting health, safety, lifestyle and property values.
    According to Michael McCann of McCann Appraisals LLC in Chicago, Ill., “Turbines are large-scale industrial machines/projects, which surround homes, unlike any other large-scale projects. I have never seen a situation akin to wind farms where an industrial zoning ‘overlay’ encompasses and surrounds existing homes. No other industrial, retail or other type of large-scale project gets approved without first buying out the existing residences rather than surrounding them. A home is the biggest investment most people have in their life and deserves value protection from a dominating land use, which generates profits for the developers and is claimed to be for the public good. It would seem that most wind energy companies are unwilling to compensate people fairly for value loss…nor buy them out.”

    According to the GWEC, “the global wind market for turbine installations in 2008 was worth $47.5 billion.” That works out to about $1.76 million per megawatt installed (http://wwwWind Energy Stocks .greenchipstocks.com/report/wind-energy-stocks/397).
    At an average cost of $1.76 million per megawatt, you’re looking at a $219.9 billion market-in just the next five years.

    I am laid off until February 2010 and I can’t afford the mortgage & tax payments…
    I need to relocate and find a new job, but I can’t sell my property…
    Because of these wind turbines surrounding my house, nobody is even interested in looking at my property…
    Why is Aim Power Generation reaping in these profits while I am approaching bankruptcy?
    Aim Power Generation should be buying me out…
    I need this to happen before I lose my house!

  3. Just in case anyone from the Government wants to know what “We” the general public are up to, all I can say is that “we” are onto the criminal behaviour of the Wind Companies and Politicians and will be expecting everyone who has been involved from this Scam from the start including periphial NGO’s and Legal firms, will be held accountable in a Public Forum!

  4. Unless the video clips were recorded beside a residence they are misleading. The separation between camera and mill should be provided. Also, how do they cause nosebleeds?

  5. The noise from the windmills sounds like jets flying overhead….This is not quiet by any means…
    We need to share this information…with everybody!!

  6. wow this is loud and companies make it out to say they are not..poor people of this county…do the cows seem to mind??
