Ontario is engaging in review of its Long Term Energy Policy and encourages public consultation. Attend a consultation session or provide your opinion online.
Ontario has a robust energy supply and it begs the question why contract for even more wind power or build projects such as Amherst Island, White Pines, Fairview Wind? Wind power continues to demonstrate it is out- of -phase with demand and we are selling the unnecessary electricity at a loss and burden of cost to ratepayers. Will the Independent Energy System Operator conduct a critical cost benefits analysis for all renewable energy power sources?
Wind power continues to create adverse harm to the environment and human health. Wind facilities remain fire walled behind the statues of the Green Energy Act shielding it from independent review. This has resulted in disabled protective standards that must be met by other sources of power generation.
Cancel the contracts. Ontario has the power.

2 thoughts on “Cancel the Contracts”
Having worked in the power industry throughout my career I know there are internal technical reports that show that there are no economically viable wind resources in Ontario. This government has ignored these and has blindly pursued this strategy for obvious political reasons. We are left with this disaster because we allowed technical illiterates to make technical decisions. Just because someone wins a popularity contest (e.g. Politician) does not mean they know what they’re doing.
