Three months after the Ripley Wind Farm went online in December, 2007, Dave Colling’s phone started ringing.
Three of his neighbours were seeing doctors about recurring ear aches. They knew Colling, a former dairy farmer who lives within two kilometres of the turbines near the southern Bruce County community, had an interest in and could test for what he calls “electrical pollution.”
“It’s like living inside a microwave. It radiates,” Colling told more than 100 people Tuesday night in Keady.
He said stray voltage eventually forced four families from their homes. Two have not returned, and one family sold the farm and moved away. Continue reading

All the Ripley Wind Farm readings where recorded in the same way, measuring the waveform from the ground wire at the transformer pole or the ground wire on the collection poles from the windmills to a remote ground rod approximately 20 meters from the pole we were measuring at. Continue reading

Some say wind turbines are having a significant negative impact on their lives

Once again I am writing to express my displeasure with the McGuinty Liberal’s lack of compassion for the victims who are suffering from wind turbine adverse health effects.
I refer to the letter, attached below, addressed to Premier McGuinty composed by yet another Ontarian suffering from wind turbine exposure.
How many families will have to suffer before the McGunity Liberals and their business partners, the wind energy companies, take notice?
The families of the Ripley Wind Project have endured adverse health effects for more than a year.
Everyday more and more Ontarians are becoming aware of the McGuinty Government’s policy of placing wind turbines ahead of public health.
I demand to know what the McGuinty Liberals are going to do to stop the suffering. I await your prompt response to my demand.

What do I do, and who do I complain to was the question? Continue reading
