New wind power projects filing for approval
September 6, 2017
The wind power developers awarded contracts in 2016 are now gradually filing for Renewable Energy Approval, in spite of the fact that Ontario has a surplus of power, and wind power is produced out of phase with demand to the extent it is estimate 70 percent of it is wasted.
The Otter Creek project (50 megawatts, Chatham-Kent, $218 million over 20 years) was just on the EBR for comment, and now the Romney Wind Energy Centre (60 megawatts, Chatham-Kent, $261 million over 20 years) has filed documents that are being screened for completeness.
Ontario does not need this new power.
Ontarians do not need more costs added to their electricity bills.
Ontario has shown it is unable — or unwilling — to deal with thousands of reports of excessive noise from projects already operating.
These contracts should be cancelled, not granted Renewable Energy Approval.
