Wind power developer records protesters in Prince Edward County

WPD’s slogan: “Wind has no limits.” Apparently, greed doesn’t either

MILFORD Ont., September 28, 2015—

As more than 300 residents of Prince Edward County gathered on Sunday to protest the assault on their community and the environment by two wind power projects (Ostrander Point and White Pines, both being appealed) Germany-based wind power developer wpd Canada recorded the event, including speeches given by various presenters.

“Shame on them,” says Paula Peel, secretary for the Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County (APPEC).

If the power developer’s presence recording people was meant as an intimidation tactic, it didn’t work, Peel says.

The organizers did a brisk business selling T-shirts and protest signs, she says. “If you didn’t come to the rally with a T-shirt or sign, it’s likely you left with one.”

“The one thing wpd will take away from our rally is that the fight is only just beginning.”

“Wind has no limits”

Then read this report:

‘Wind Capacity Factors Drop on West Coast Due to Poor Wind Speeds’

“For instance, capacity factors for wind on the U.S. West Coast for the first five months of this year were consistently below their previous five year average because wind speeds dropped in California, Oregon and Washington.”

It’s ridiculous to say that wind speed patterns don’t change and investors should be wary of what they are getting into.

The sewer plant here in Union Beach recorded our biggest protest on video too. Since that was at a public meeting, I suggest you file a request for a copy….just to have it and to see if they violated any meeting laws. We also recorded a few future meetings ourselves, which we have the right to do in NJ. We got them on record saying a few things in our favor that probably wouldn’t have made it into their minutes.

This is something akin to installing IWTs at Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.
