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.

 

Special Council Meeting re Operations Plan

Category: Uncategorized

Loyalist Council will consider Windlectric’s Operations Plan on Monday May 29 at 5:00 pm (Note correction!)

Of equal importance Council will consider verbal submissions at its meeting on Tuesday May 23 2017 at 7:00 and will consider written submissions no later than Tuesday May 23rd at 4:30 pm.

Please attend both meetings and ensure your voice is heard.

This is a critical opportunity to make the case about the impact on your property. You may wish to comment on the lack of survey information, safety, load bearing capacity of roads, truck traffic, location of collectors, enforceability given Windlectric’s performance to date, compliance, impact on your well and aquifers, and all aspects of the project keeping in mind that Council is limited by the Green Energy Act.

You can view the Operations Plan on the Loyalist web site: http://www.loyalisttownship.ca/…/…/amherstislandwindproject/.
