Wind Power


It has been a couple of years since I have been to visit my brother on Wolfe Island. Since I was last there a massive wind farm has been installed. I had heard something of the proposal but, had never imagined the size of the project.

Unless you happen to have land where the company wanted to put one of the 86 windmills, I can’t imagine you’d be very happy about it. The project has significantly changed the landscape of the island and even if you were all for green power, the installation is more than a bit imposing.

On the upside it has allowed Ontario to close one of their coal generated power plants but, it ain’t subtle.
