With the provincial election coming up in October, members of Huron East Against Turbines (HEAT) are asking Huron East council to do what it can to stall progress on the St. Columban Wind Energy LP’s 15-turbine project, which recently received an offer for an Ontario Power Authority contract.

“There is no reason to rush negotiations. With an election coming up, there is every reason to stall,” said Gerry Ryan, HEAT member at Huron East’s July 19 meeting.  Read article

  1. St.Columban Wind Energy – is owned by a gas company.
    Now, this municipality will need a ‘miracle’.

    It’s too bad.

    Good Luck!

  2. ILLINOIS AND OTHER PLACES HAD HUGE MUNICIPAL TAXES ON WIND TURBINES.

    GET TIM HUDAK TO PROMISE TO ALLOW MUNICIPALITIES TO IMPOSE LARGE TAXES. THE ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE FROM THE PROVINCIAL SUBSIDIES WOULD DISAPPEAR. AS WILL THE WINDMILLS WHO NO LONGER COULD COMPETE.WITH OTHER LESS EXDPENSIVE AND PRACTICAL PRODUCTION METHODS.
