Yet another wind turbine project has been proposed for Haldimand Norfolk area. Do we need another hole in our head? This time we can do something about it.
SWEB Development LP wants to erect wind turbines northwest of Jarvis. The purpose of this project is to lose even more money exporting surplus power and extract it out of our pockets through ever increasing hydro bills. Sound like a plan?
Council has declared the county to be an Unwilling Host as far as any more wind turbines. They sent a letter to Premier Wynne on February 14, 2013 with the following resolution.
“NOW THEREFORE be it resolved that Haldimand County Council will not be providing local municipal support to any application that will construct industrial wind turbines in Haldimand County.”
Council needs to take a firm unanimous stand against this project, and we need to contact the company (rory.cantwell@swebdevelopment) and go to their public meeting and tell them no ourselves. It’s June 23, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Jarvis Lions community centre.
We now have the power to say no, but we’ve got to say so.
