Where will wind companies get the money to pay for roads?

Tuesday May 6, 2014 – The Sachem – Op Ed

I read the article in last week’s Sachem concerning the roadwork that will be required once the wind turbine companies are finished.

First of all, isn’t it nice that our county has waived the half load restrictions for these guys, once again displaying their eagerness to bend over backwards for anything related to the folly known as the Green Energy Act?

Secondly, it seems that the wind turbine companies themselves will be on the hook for the costs of the repairs.

Whew… that’s a relief. But where will they get the money? From the Ontario government, of course. And the Ontario government will get it from us. Samsung, in particular, loves to spend our tax dollars. I’m sure we paid the tab when Samsung took Mayor Hewitt on that little golf outing a couple of years back. We can only hope he golfs better than he governs.
