The Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County is committed to energy conservation and the development of responsible alternative forms of energy that preserve the unique historical, cultural, agricultural and rural character of the County and the natural beauty of its landscape. The group promotes the awareness of the real impacts of industrial wind energy on Prince Edward County’s environment, economy, and quality of life.
Industrial Wind Turbine Development
The Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County believes that any installation of industrial-scale wind-turbine complexes in Prince Edward County will be detrimental to its unique historical, agricultural, cultural and rural character. There are no locations within the County or in the near shore waters where a wind turbine complex would not severely impact the health, environment, creative and rural economies, and quality of life of its citizens.
APPEC is therefore opposed to the development of industrial wind projects in Prince Edward County.
APPEC believes that responsible and sustainable energy alternatives and conservation measures should be located and showcased within Prince Edward County. These initiatives would meet or exceed provincial policy goals and would improve the environment, economy, health, and quality of life while at the same time preserving the character of the County.
