Shoreline Beacon — The Enbridge wind power proposal will dot the countryside with massive renewable wind energy systems, if the company can convince the residents of Kincardine and Saugeen Shores that the project is of value to everyone.
Now we wonder what it would be like with the threat of construction of huge wind turbines with the constant noise and the strobe lights, which would mean that never again would we see the beauty of the sunset.
In the provincial legislature Friday, Liberal House Leader Richard Brown said the Island’s main power utility is being hit with major expense hikes, due in part to the rising cost of energy generally, but also to the added expenses that will come with the promotion of wind energy and other power sources.
The challenge for renewables like sunshine and wind is that they are less energy-dense than fossil fuels and intermittent in supply. Advocates get excited about these alternatives, but we do need to estimate the extra capital and energy costs for concentrating low-density energy such as ethanol and storing intermittent energy like wind power.
Creststreet Power & Income Fund LP would have done just fine if the wind had blown – but it didn't get the raw material for its turbines and ran up a heavy first-quarter loss.
Except for a promise to retain the "airstrip" designation for private airfields, as opposed to "airports," in its Official Plan, Amaranth council would commit itself to nothing by the end of a sometimes emotional two-hour presentation by three delegations.

A group of angry Melancthon property owners told councillors last week that they should address problems with phase one of the Melancthon wind project before moving on to phase two.
Livingston argues wind-driven power green and cost-effective
Aside from the dubious origins of the Climate 90 letter, it certainly supports the Skeptic 60 claim that there is major disagreement among scientists.
Consumers sign on before May 1 hikes.. But watchdog calls long-term price high
PORT BURWELL -- Pea-soup fog shrouded dozens of wind turbines near here yesterday, lifting just in time for the official launch of Ontario's largest and newest wind farm, which stretches along the Lake Erie shoreline. But energy expert Tom Adams warns the future of wind power projects in Ontario remains clouded.
LIVERPOOL — Wind turbines will probably start popping up on Nova Scotia’s South Shore within a couple of years as companies vying for choice locations fine-tune their proposals.
AltaGas Income Trust (AltaGas or the Trust) and GreenWing Energy Management Ltd. (GreenWing) announced the formation of a limited partnership for the purpose of developing a portfolio of power projects in North America.
Wind and solar power have a much higher profile as sources of renewable energy. Yet, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists, based in the United States, biomass provides almost 30 times more energy to Americans than wind and solar power combined.
An open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper
A Cree band on James Bay and a private Toronto-based company have set in motion plans to build a $3-billion wind energy project that would be Canada's largest wind park.
A major Canadian wind power developer is eyeing the Mattawa-Bonfield area, east of North Bay, for a potential wind farm.
Arthur Rosenfeld speaks with the conviction of a man who has seen the incandescent light. As head of the California Energy Commission, he takes a decidedly low-watt approach toward energy savings, espousing staid but effective building codes, appliance standards, and utility-run energy efficiency programs that reward consumers for shopping green.
A company hoping to make a windfall off Brock's high winds recently briefed township council on its progress.
