Wind factories should not be near neighbourhoods. They should be built where they will not harm people or wildlife.
But instead of building wind factories in remote unpopulated areas, OPA contracts with developers to build them where the lines are, already paid for, by us! Community by community, infrastructure built with our monthly Hydro payments is used to industrialize rural neighbourhoods, enabled by the Green Energy Act!
On my Hydro bill, the charge for “Delivery” is always greater than the charge for electricity. We paid for those transmission lines and substations to serve our neighbourhoods, not to harm them.
