I support the person that wrote this and feel I am being screwed by the gov't and power co. because if this is such a cost effective method, why are the windmills and solar panels not being put where the most energy is used like in Southern Ontario. Then they might not be so happy to see their view being littered with windmills.
What a load of B S, neither wind nor solar will ever be able to maintain power so there will always have to be a back-up system. Why put the farms where there is no demand for power is beyond me, and I am a firm believer in the NIMBY idea, why spoil my outlook and property value for something I am not going to use? Fill the tops of Toronto's building with solar panels and the shore of Lake Ontario with the wind farms, they use the power, let them generate it. These projects bring very little employment value to this area, and as it is in general rural tax that is low, there is little or no value in property tax values either. This is just another grab by power companies for your and my money in increased power bills, all in the name of "Green Energy" it's green alright or should I say beige and green, all the way to the bank for them
