We are committed to informing the people of Ontario as to the many concerns surrounding industrial wind power.
Wind Concerns Ontario is a province-wide advocacy organization whose mission is to protect the health, safety and quality of life of the people of Ontario from industrial wind turbines. We are working hard to help the public understand that wind power is not the answer to protecting the environment.
What We Do
Wind Concerns Ontario supports responsible, environmentally sound solutions to our energy demands and environmental challenges. However, the plan supported by the Green Energy Act to locate industrial wind power plants at an accelerated schedule, with little oversight and no cost-benefit analysis, is tearing apart the very fabric of rural Ontario. Along with transformers, transmission lines, overhead distribution wires and substations these industrial wind turbines threaten people and the environment in serene, historic, rural communities, on prime agricultural land, migratory bird paths and close to sensitive wetlands, designated wildlife areas and pristine shorelines.
Wind Concerns Ontario is a coalition of individuals and grassroots citizen’s groups from across Ontario. Wind Concerns Ontario is incorporated with Industry Canada and receives no funding other than membership fees and donations. We are a strictly volunteer organization and, save for legal advisors and other consultants, rely on the dedicated work of members of citizen groups throughout Ontario.
