Thousand Island's Life magazine writes about the Threat of industrial wind turbines in the thousand Islands.[Thousand Islands life mag]


Wind Turbines

We received this announcement and poster from Mary Hamilton, president of Concerned Residents of Hammond (CROH) regarding the installation of Wind Turbines in the region:
The threat of industrial wind development along the 1000 Islands corridor is the basis for a movement that is underway to ensure the 1000 Islands viewshed and tourist economy is protected and the "Garden of the Great Spirit" is preserved. Industrial wind developers proposals to site hundreds of 500' towers producing auditory and visual pollution along the river is in direct conflict with the natural resources that have provided income and investments for generations of north country residents. Hundreds of thousands of visitors play in our waters and savor the magnificence of "an area that is like no other place on earth". As stewards of this land, we must not turn our heads but rather should do all we can to PROTECT this region.
The NYS Public Service Commission Article 10 Siting Board is listening and wants to know how you feel about this type of industrial development. They encourage anyone who has comments to make about the proposed St. Lawrence Wind project in Cape Vincent and Lyme as well as the Horse Creek project in Clayton to EMAIL THEIR WEBSITE (Secretary@dps.ny.gov). 

So far they have heard from almost 230 people with the vast majority of those comments voicing support for Protecting the 1000 Islands. 230 responses is good, but there are 1000's of people who live here or visit this area and could make their feelings known and have their voices heard. All of these comments will become part of the record that will be used by the Article 10 Siting board to decide whether or not to site a wind project in this area.

Please send your email comments to: Secretary@dps.ny.gov

How do you describe BP and Iberdrola in one word?
