“In March of 2006, the Kingsbridge 1 Wind Farm became operational, however; as every company of this size must do they have to build their equipment. So the turbines were built, during this time period while they were NOT connected to the power line they still turned, the closest of the 7 turbines was approximately 656m away with the main transmission line only 43 meters away from both the house and
the barn. This turning created a lot of “white noise” which was disturbing to sleep and concentration levels started to decrease. However, once they became “operational” the turning speed increased and the issues got worse. Some of the issues included headaches – constantly, lack of concentration – unable
to do basic math, lack of sleep.
Our family dog also exhibited behavioural changes including being lethargic. Our livestock started displaying behaviour issues; they were very nervous and began showing untrustworthy attributes. These cattle were previously quiet cattle.
Meaning that after they calved you could handle them, pet them and trust our children around them. However this was just the start of what was to come. Testing was started by Hydro One to see what the issue was: as the cattle where very jumpy and also, the basic shock levels were increasing. (You know like when you drag your feet across the carpet then touch someone or reach for a door. Only thing was this was happening around the barn yard and outside the house as well.) Due to the increasing “shocks” we had to wear shoes in our house at all times. You had to be very careful when you went to shower, bathe or do dishes, as the shocks were much stronger when the turbines were working. However, the tests were
never completely accurate as the wind company kept turning off the turbines in our area when they knew testing was going on. That didn’t stop the issue however, as they still had many others pumping electricity down the lines past our farm.” Read full submission
