Wind power approvals update: just two remain under old FIT

Orville Walsh of Prince Edward County has updated the list of wind power projects seeking approval under the previous Feed In Tariff program. They are Henvey Inlet (300 megawatts) and North Kent 1 (100 megawatts).

More contracts are to be let for the 2015 Large Renewable Project process, with the announcements now not coming until March 2016. (The original timeline of contract announcements for November-December 2015 was embarrassingly close to the release of the Auditor General’s report which was a scathing criticism of how the Ontario government has handled the electricity file, in particular the rising consumer rates and the losses due to bargain-basement sale of excess power.)

Yesiree, just wait until the cottagers of Northern Georgian Bay get wind of the 150 or so IWTs proposed for the Henvey Inlet project.

Right now these urban-based, Liberal-loving ostriches, with their collective heads firmly planted in the sand, get their news and views from the usual suspect sources: the Toronto Star, CBC and CTV, where all bad news green energy stories are buried. Even Cottage Life Magazine, who should have been informing their Thirty Thousand Island readers of this impending development, chose to sit on the fence once again, as they did with vacation home owners in the Land ‘O’ Lakes, Algoma and Mattawa areas.
