Earlier I posted pictures of the wind turbine projects slated for the Chatham-Kent area. I’ve continued onward, now creating pictures of the eastern shore of Lake Huron, specifically the Ontario counties of Lambton, Huron and Bruce. As ugly as Chatham-Kent is, I think Lake Huron is even uglier. The yellow cloud is 200km long and 20 wide and runs up the entire coastline. The picture is clickable, but even at full size it doesn’t do justice to what is planned there.
And, like C-K, I’m not showing everything in play. In Bruce and Huron I’m showing about 400 turbines each which is roughly 80% of those that have been publicly discussed. There’s also another 200 up on the Bruce Peninsula that I’m not showing either.
One of the consequences of the wild west environment the Ontario government has created is that it is often difficult to get accurate information about the various projects. Secrecy and financial deals are rampant. To help me keep track of the ongoing mess, I’ve created an Excel spreadsheet with all the projects I’m aware of, their county, size, status and the status of any picture I’ve created for them. It is also available for the asking.
Here’s a larger picture of Bruce County, followed by a larger picture of Huron County. You may notice a few gaps, like east of Goderich and north of Port Elgin. Not to fear, I’d bet the other 20% that I’m not showing will be filling these gaps. Nor am I showing the Middlesex County turbines, which fill in the corner between Huron and Lambton.
