1,000 Wind Turbines

By Anne Russell, Goderich Signal Star
We have all heard a great deal recently about Industrial Wind Turbines, but are you aware of the large number of turbines proposed to be built within the next 2 to 3 years in our area? Approximately 800 wind turbines will follow the Lake Huron shoreline, extending from Amberley (north of Goderich) through Grand Bend to Sarnia, and east to include Lucknow, Hensall, Credition, Parkhill, Strathroy and Alvinston. This number does not include the turbines proposed further inland and along Lake Erie & Ontario. In addition there are already over 175 operating turbines in the Kincardine and Ripley area and on the Bruce Peninsula. This means that there will be approximately 1,000 turbines from Kincardine to Sarnia.  Read article

  1. The visual to this article certainly demonstrates the future of our beautiful rural Ontario. And for what? Maybe just maybe we might save 1% in CO2 emmissions….but probably won’t.

  2. Good visual,counted 59 turbines and they must be around 200ft high.
    With 1- 4 thousand IWT’s at 500 ft high (to blade tip) you will probably be able to see them from Kitchener.
    Flying a BLIMP (large orange ballon) might be interesting…where do you find one of them?

    What a welcome to tourists…NOT!

  3. This is ridiculous. What will happen to tourism in these areas? What about the local farmers and residents. These areas are way too populated for so many wind turbines!
