Use the 400 series Highways for Wind Turbine Power

this is my Mom's idea, but I think it is great. Set up wind turbines along the 400 series highways where they would fit in and not require expropriation. We already own the land.

Cease wind turbine projects

Stop all current projects. The cost of the turbines the contruction costs and land payments to land owners far outweigh the amount if electricity that they can produce. Also when we need the power the most in the summer is when air currents are at the calmest. And now some of these companies want to send the power generated by these to the US. So we pay and never benefit from the little power they actually produce. And ...more »

Neighbourhood Revitalization and Development

Our low-Income neighbourhoods experience increase in income inequality; challenges to the social fabric of the community; decreases efficiency of social institutions; high rates of unemployment and underemployment; increasing risks of depression - mental health issues; lower school graduation rates; increase in crime/organized crime rates; deterioration of housing and general quality of life. Therefore, we should urge ...more »

New electricity from old Lakeshore power plant.

The Lakeshore coal-fired power plant is gone; thank goodness and thank the Liberal government. But the area seems now to have no function. It is publicly owned, and there are power lines coming from it into the grid. Why not abandon gas-fired power plants as unnecessary and provocative, and use this site as a major solar electric power producer. In fact, although it might be more controversial, why not have wind-powered ...more »

Using Green energy for fuel and fertilizer

We pay $200 Million per year for others to use our subsidized Green energy and now we are going to pay $200 Million per year for wind producers not to produce. Instead we should turn this energy into ammonia (NH3) which sells for $1,000.00 per ton, and sell it to our farmers at half price to use as fertilizer or fuel, and make a $250 Million per year profit replacing imported commodities instead of losing $200 Million ...more »

cancel wind and solar push ASAP...sooner the cheaper

we have the best mix of solar,gas,hydro....wind and solar are an undependable,unproductive,unneeded waste of funds,doubling hydro costs for next 20 years that we don't need anyway...less power required now than 15 years ago with business fleeing the province....stop the gravy train at peoples expense...less approved projects,less compensation claims later....cancel fit giveaway...SOONER THE CHEAPER.....

First Nations-Indigenous Skills Training - Green Energy Projects

Partner with First Nations-Indigenous youth artists to develop a visually acceptable alternative to Green energy projects. Example: Wind turbines to have a sculpted mask of aboriginal art (such as a totems, or totem poll with feathered propellers). The benefit of partnering with our First Nations-Indigenous people, is to recognize the shared vision of sustainable energy alternatives provided by mother natures vast ...more »

Stop Funding of Nuclear Energy

Nuclear energy is no longer glamorous. It is expensive to build, maintain and operate. No one has yet developed a good idea on how to deal with spent radioactive reactor rods that last for more than a thousand years. More should be invested in hydro-electric, particularly run-of-the-river technologies that harness the power of rivers. Just imagine the clean power that could be generated from the Detroit River, the St. ...more »

Invest in Research of Green Energy (Hydro, Wind & Solar)

Green energy (wind, solar and hydro) are the way of the future versus Coal, Gas and Nuclear. It is cheaper (in the long run), free (once implemented) and inexhaustible. We are still paying a premium on our hydro bills for the past investment in nuclear and no one knows how to get rid of the waste nuclear fuel rods.

McGuinty had the right idea, but fell down by contracting for a high price for green energy.
