Amherst Island Survey

As you may be aware, an Industrial Wind Farm is going to be built on Amherst Island in Ontario's drive to move over to so-called "Green Energy". With the survey below please let me know your thoughts on the proposed Amherst Island wind farm.

In periods of low demand, rather than shut down expensive wind power, we shut down less expensive producers. Then we’re stuck having to pay other jurisdictions like Quebec or New York to take our surplus from us. This just doesn’t make any sense.

Please rate whether you “strongly agree to strongly disagree” with the statement.

    Q: Recently the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) reported that wind energy in Ontario is being used to replace hydro electricity on the grid, rather than fossil fuel sources. This just doesn’t make any sense.
    A: Neutral

    Q: If an Amherst Islander wanted to convert their property to a Bed & Breakfast, they would encounter endless hurdles and red tape, such as acquiring building permits, Health Unit approvals and permits, municipal zoning, LLBO, Canada Revenue Agency, and a litany of inspections, yet the green energy project proposed for the Island is practically rubber-stamped. This is unjust, as it gives one group preferential treatment over another.
    A: Strongly Agree

    Q: The proposed industrial wind turbine project is being built only a few miles from the new power plant being built in Bath. The new power plant is on the same site as the existing plant, which only operates at 5% capacity because we have a surplus of power. Building tax subsidized wind turbines on Amherst Island serves no benefit to tax payers, and the project should be cancelled.
    A: Agree

    Q: Industrial wind turbines are heavily subsidized with tax dollars in Ontario, yet benefit only a few at the cost of the many.
