APAI was not successful in achieving Leave to Appeal.

Windlectric/Algonquin, the company granted approval to blanket Amherst island with 26, fifty storey turbines, has completed dock construction on Amherst Island and commenced dock construction on the mainland. Loyalist Township has not approved the draft Operations Plan required by the Roads Use Agreement.  Windlectric has not entered into a Roads Use Agreement with the County of Lennox and Addington.   The company’s pre-construction study and Operations Plan note that Island roads with the exception of Front Rad do not have the load bearing capacity to support project traffic and equipment.  Island roads will fail!

In its first weeks of work the company caused a major power outage on the Island and a water emergency in Prince Edward County.  Restrictions due to fish spawning and grassland birds were blatantly disregarded.    Not a good beginning!

Call to Action
Please request Premier Wynne (premier@ontario.ca or 416-325-1941) and Minister Murray (minister.moecc@ontario.ca or 416-314-6790) to cancel the project without penalty because of the company’s inability to achieve its Commercial Operations Date and because it’s absolutely the right thing to do.


We are being bullied AND we are resilient, tenacious, and absolutely committed.

 

Proponent

Windlectric Inc is a shell company created by Algonquin Power and Utilities to plan the proposed industrial wind turbine project on Amherst Island. This private company has two Directors, no employees, no financial track record, no experience building industrial wind turbines, no independent Directors and no public oversight. We face the likelihood that Windlectric, as a shell company, will ultimately have no assets. If we suffer loss or harm we may be unable to seek compensation, no matter how wealthy the project may have made its investors.

Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. is a renewable energy and regulated utility company with about $3 billion in assets across North America. The Corporation invests in hydroelectric, wind and solar power facilities, and sustainable utility distribution businesses (water, electricity and natural gas) through its two operating subsidiaries: Algonquin Power Company and Liberty Utilities.
