CouncilWatch Action Alert: Wind Power at Risk

Toronto wind power at risk!
The Province has proposed a 5km shoreline 'exclusion zone' for off-shore wind turbines - effectively eliminating all possibility of off-shore wind energy in Toronto.

ACT NOW: Tell the Province that you support off-shore wind power in Toronto

We need the Province to hear from as many wind-supporters as possible before August 24th, 2010. Comment online now.

Here are some key points to make in your submission:

  • I object to the proposed 5km exclusion zone for off-shore wind power. This proposal puts Toronto's green energy future at risk as it will prevent important off-shore wind projects. 
  • Proper site-specific studies can and should be used to provide scientific facts to ensure that wind power projects are located with minimal health and environmental impacts.
  • A single shoreline exclusion zone for the entire Province is excessive and unnecessarily restrictive.
