Report: No turbines in Important Bird Areas

Opponents of wind turbines in Prince Edward County will like this news.

In a report to be released today, Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner Gord Miller says the province should not allow industrial wind turbines in so called “Important Bird Areas”.

The south shore of Prince Edward County is designated as an ” Important Bird Area”, and there are proposals to build wind turbines there.

Thousands of birds, of various species, use the County as a resting place on their migratory routes.

Commissioner Miller says the province should also not be putting wind turbines in the way of major migratory routes for bats.
