- Three industrial wind turbine companies, Capital Power, NextEra Energy, and Samsung plan to install up to 200 industrial wind turbines in between Port Dover and Dunnville. Of this total 69 Samsung and up to 50 by one of the other companies are scheduled to be erected between Cayuga and Dunnville. (click here to see location maps)
- Total turbine height from wingtip to base is at least 129 metres (423 feet, or 42 storeys). The towers will be a minimum 80 metres tall (262 feet, about 26 storeys). Each blade will be 49 metres long (160 feet).
- The nearest turbine is to be placed 550 metres from the nearest residence. This is much closer than the European setback standard. Numerous reports recommend setbacks of 1500 to 2000 metres.
- Concerns about noise, vibrations and low-frequency sound have been documented at other Ontario wind farms. The human health impact of wind turbines has largely been unstudied.
- Under the Green Energy Act, the Province has stripped elected municipal governments, including Haldimand mayor and council of all planning authority for the installation of these turbines.
- In a 3 year study of 600 property sales near Melancthon, Ontario, wind turbines showed a 20-25% property value depreciation and some properties were not saleable at any price.
- Land owners who lease or option their land for a turbine are required to sign a confidentiality clause or gag order and cannot speak as to what is coming. They cannot disclose any details of the financial arrangement and have no recourse if they develop any health issues as a result of living in close proximity to turbines or substations.
- A March 2010 survey of the Clear Creek IPC wind project in Norfolk showed that within a 3 km radius there was: 8 abadandoned houses, 11 vacant houses for sale, 9 occupied homes for sale, and 3 residents who live at their properties during the day but have to sleep elsewhere at night.
- “For too long we have been politically correct. We need to be scientifically correct and look for better solutions to solve our energy needs. Industrial wind power is not the answer.”
