I was reading along in the article linked below, thinking this sounds pretty good. Some good things in the overall intentions I would think, but coming to the end of the article there is discussion on eliminating coal fired electricity production by the end of 2014. How realistic is that?
Interesting position on potential complaints regarding locating of renewable energy sources;
"Premier Dalton McGuinty has warned activists and municipalities that the province won't tolerate any objections to new wind turbines or solar panel farms that aren't based on safety or environmental concerns."
It is also interesting how quickly some people will complain when wind farms etc. are located in their area. The Snow Bird song lady comes to mind as she was quite outspoken about how a development close to her Pictou County N.S. summer home was going to inconvenience her and lower her property values.
"They are imposing structures and not the sort of thing one would wants to see from a golf course," Murray wrote Tuesday in a commentary published in a Halifax newspaper.
" The turbines would generate 30 megawatts, enough power for about 15,000 homes. The development is proposed to be online in 2009."
