This next week, most of all of the Ontario Municipalities will be gathering in Toronto for the annual OGRA/ROMA Conference at the Royal York. See the program.
Of note is the “Sustained Gusts: Wind Energy and Municipalities (Workshop)” slated for Monday, Feb 25 10:45 — 12:15 PM, Imperial Room, Lobby Level. The description reads:
Whether a solution for Ontario’s energy challenges or a possible source of adverse health effects, the reality is the wind power has arrived in Ontario in a very significant way. The harnessing of the wind has significant implications for municipalities in Ontario. We have assembled a roster of proponents and opponents to examine this issue.
The SESSION CHAIR is Eleanor Renaud, Councillor, Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley and ROMA Director. The session is sponsored by CanWEA (Canadian Wind Energy Association)
- Mark Davis — Multi-Municipal Wind Turbine Working Group
- Brandy Giannetta — Canadian Wind Energy Association
- Bill Palmer P. Eng — Multi-Municipal Wind Turbine Working Group
- Jutta Splettstoesser — Friends of Wind Ontario
