Site Plan Map
The Site Plan Map shows up to twenty-seven turbines blanketing the Island and about an additional 35 km of access roads.
The Noise Contour Map shows that over 80% of Island properties will be subject to noise almost at the maximum Ministry of the Environment regulations. As the predictions are likely to be understated by up to 8 dBA at least some of the time and consequently the turbines will be non-compliant. Residents will be subject relentless noise, a thumping sound caused by change in rotor direction, the low frequency effects, and a possible impact on health.
The first principle of any development should be to “do no harm”. This proposal to proceed despite lack of compliance with standards should be unacceptable to the Ministry of the Environment and the Government of Ontario.
