Nextera would like to consult with you on their 63 turbine project around Grand Bend. Perhaps they need to be asked exactly what they mean by ‘mitigation’ when they speak of birds, wildlife, noise, shadow flicker etc. Well, we know what it means for a bald eagle, so we can assume it means the same for everything else. wouldn’t hurt to ask them though folks! FYI: these turbines are close to the Pinery Provincial Park as well. Get out there and have your voice heard!

The Nextera Goshen Wind project will be “consisting of up to 62 GE 1.6 and 1 GE 1.56 MW turbines, step-up padmount transformers, a transformer substation, electrical collection & transmission systems, turbine access roads, an operations building, meteorological towers & construction staging areas.”
“The purpose of the meeting is to provide residents an opportunity to review and discuss the draft documentation related to the Project’s Renewable Energy Approval application.”, although their map , has all proper towns totally removed, as if these towns don’t exist. The towns being treated as non-existant are: Exeter, Grand Bend, Dashwood, Huron Park, Hensall and Zurich, & perhaps others. This suggests deliberate faulty mapping, to mislead us into thinking that there is not enough population of any significance in that whole area, therefore nothing to be concerned about.
