NEXTera’s Convenient “Truth”

nexteraNextera is owned by the FLP Group who boast annual revenues of over $16 Billion.   In a recent article Local wind projects to have limited impact on Brockton, a representative from NEXTera, Nicole Geneau spoke glowingly about her company:

Geneau told council her company is the largest owner and operator of wind turbines in North America with 8,200 operating in 65 different projects across 24 states and two provinces.

“I have not heard one single complaint,” Geneau said. “That tells us the process we’re using is working.  We use the best science and follow regulations.” 

Ms. Geneau, I’m sure you remember sitting at Daniel D’Entremont’s kitchen table only weeks before this meeting.     He had to abandon his house in Feb 2006 with family in tow and still has no resolution and no home.  

Nicole Geneau along with Josie Hernandez and Winston Kutte were sitting at Mr. D’Entremont’s kitchen table in Pubnico, Nova Scotia on July 25th, only two weeks prior to these Ontario meetings saying that they didn’t know what they could do for him.   He would just have to walk away and start over again.

He has since been told by NEXTera they don’t have enough money to offer any compensation whatsoever with everything else they have to do, like buying a new office location.  And so Daniel, his wife and children are moving around, living with understanding relatives with no place to call home.

Does this sound like someone you want in your back yard?  Does this sound like an ethical and honest company?   What are you going to do for Daniel and his family, NEXTera?   Continue to ignore him?  Does your corporation see no problem in destroying a family home to get that profit margin up?   

Or will you step up to the plate and fix this embarrassing problem your company has created?  Let us know what you plan on doing, and quit trying to impress the councils and residents of Ontario with your ridiculous statements.   Read more about the D’Entremont’s Ordeal Here

  1. I’ve driven to the Pubnico site……very ugly….and the day I was there, there was no wind = no movement…..Our Council were wooed their by their peers and handed a line…..We know the story well.A whole family,each member having a differentr effect,and they had to leave their home and native village….Great corporate citizens,those guys,ayE?

  2. They have no money, but they can afford to install a 100 turbine wind farm here in Haldimand County. That’s twice they’ve lied.

  3. Lying seems to be OK when Wind Company’s try and sell “their vision” to Councils and have created a huge Industry to support those Lies.
    When faced with facts, figures and studies that contradict their Lies they take their paperwork and run for the exits!
    Skypower admitted their middle management staff was “unprepared and lacked knowledge” when dealing publicly with questions during meetings. What makes NEXTera any different from any other Wind Company?
    If it smells like a duck…………………
