300+ Wind Turbines proposed for Lambton County

Hundreds of wind turbines could be built in Lambton County if all the projects on the drawing board proceed as planned.

When the Ontario Power Authority awarded a new round of contracts to wind generation projects in April no Lambton sites were on the list.

But a dozen proposals with generation capacity totalling nearly 500 megawatts (MW) in Lambton did make a second power authority list of projects waiting for Hydro One to open more capacity on the grid.

Those Lambton projects would require building more than 300 turbines, if they used the current 1.5 MW models.

One of the largest on the drawing board is the 150 MW project that Jericho Wind Energy Centre Boulevard Associates Canada Inc. wants to build in the Thedford area.

Sydenham Wind Project

Although this project isn’t in Middlesex, I think it is important to know about projects that are close by so that we can spread the word to our friends and family that live in that area (Alvinston, Newbury, Bothwell).

Below is some more information on the ‘Sydenham’ wind project. Please pass on to anybody you know in this area.

I was glad to hear the Brooke-Alvinston mayor say that the safety and health of the residents comes first, on the MyFM Strathroy website.
