WARWICK: Mayor frustrated with lack of communication and common sense in planning

Paul Morden, Sarnia Observer
Plans for up to a dozen wind turbines in Warwick Township have Mayor Todd Case feeling frustrated. Nextera Energy is holding the first of three public meetings about its 150-MW Jericho Wind project at Centennial Hall in Watford Feb. 6, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The community hall sits a few kilometres south from where the mostly Lambton Shores-based Jericho project spills over the border into Warwick.

Case said there has been a serious lack of communication from both Nextera Energy, and from the Ontario government. Warwick’s council voted earlier in November to call on the province to deal with a list of the township’s concerns and objections about its Green Energy initiative.

“The common sense in this whole equation seems to have gone out the window, quite some time ago,” Case said. “It seems here in Ontario we’re just going to keep marching forward and we’re not going to consider all the facts.”

Nextera released a map earlier this month showing 97 proposed sites for up to 92 Jericho Wind project turbines it wants to begin operating in 2014. Warwick has joined other Ontario municipalities calling for a moratorium on wind farms until a federal health study can be completed. Read article

  1. The mayor – dumber than I thought!

    ‘[excerpt] Council is also worried the grid capacity problems won’t be solved in the next three or four years when a landfill gas-powered generating project – capable of powering up to 7,000 homes – is planned for the large Twin Creeks landfill near Watford.

    Using methane gas produced by the landfill to generate electricity is “true recycling,” according to Case.

    But that won’t happen if there isn’t enough room on the transmission grid for the landfill power project.

    “There’s going to be windmills in Warwick Township going around and around, and we’re going to have that true recycling at the landfill flared to the sky,” Case said.’

    Ugh! ……………………..goofball for mayor!

    • Let’s have lunch with the mayor!
      Warwick – and its Green Energy initiative – ugh!

      Mayor to give speech on – common sense – soon – maybe
      I can’t wait!
      Confused?

    There is no excuse for not knowing the internet information on U.S. developers that are operating in Ontario except that some don’t want to know.

  3. The money trail is like the world wide web, it has infiltrated through to every level, in countries all over the world. There will be a great gnashing of teeth before this is all over, but if we are firm in our resolve, they will have to swallow their losses and their false pride and go away.

      First –
      I would suggest – mayor Case and the stupids – get rid of the ‘fig newtons’ rolling around in their heads.
      Note to mayor – Queens Park is shut down.

  4. These wind turbines do not benefit the community. Unless this company wants to supply free electricity to all the residents, kick them to the curb! They are ugly, affect the animals and possibly the people. Why do you need a study…it’s obvious!
