Dawn Euphemia’s “not a willing host” declaration prompts windco departure
Here from the Sarnia Observer, an account of the reasons behind wind power developer rpGlobal’s decisions not to proceed with its wind power project “at this time.”
Among the reasons cited, the fact that host community Dawn-Euphemia had declared itself “Not a Willing Host” to wind power projects.
A wind company has informed Dawn-Euphemia Township it’s not moving ahead with plans for a 32-turbine wind farm in the rural Lambton County municipality.
Administrator-clerk Michael Schnare said the township received an e-mail recently from rpGlobal saying “they are not proceeding with the project at this time.”
In July, Dawn-Euphemia council joined the list of Ontario municipalities declaring itself not a willing host to wind turbine projects.
“They cited that as one of the reasons,” Schnare said about the rpGlobal e-mail, adding it also mentioned “the level of opposition in the community to the project.”
