Bon Echo area residents organize against wind ‘farm’
..and maybe soon, 150 turbines…
Residents of North Frontenac and Addington Highlands (also known as Land O’ Lakes area) have organized to fight the threatened 150-turbine wind power development by NextEra.
NextEra is the renewable energy arm of the U.S. power company, Florida Light and Power. As Parker Gallant has revealed in a post on this site, FPL is doing so well scooping up subsidy money here in Ontario, they have actually provided rate reductions to their customers in the United States.
See the website for the Bon Echo Area Residents Against Turbines here. The website is under construction and promises more detail later, but features a petition for signing now.
Citizens recently held a community meeting in Denbigh that included presentations by Parker Gallant and Carmen Krogh.
The group also has a Twitter account bearatorg and Facebook page.
