Press Release on Wedgeport (Little River Harbour / Comeau’s Hill) Wind Farm

d’Entremont seeks meeting with NDP Energy Minister on proposed wind farm

For immediate release
July 13, 2012

In light of opposition to a proposed wind farm development by many residents of Comeau’s Hill and Little River Harbour, PC MLA Chris d’Entremont will be seeking a meeting with the NDP Minister of Energy so he can raise the community’s concerns with the NDP government.

“It’s clear that many residents are opposed to this project and I’ll be making sure the NDP government hears their concerns loud and clear,” he said.

d’Entremont says the NDP have forced an expensive electricity plan on Nova Scotians and are leaving all the hard work to municipalities to manage the growth in wind energy projects. He says there is an important role for wind power in Nova Scotia, but the process for proposing locations is “causing anxiety and upset and pitting neighbor against neighbor”.

d’Entremont says he’ll be urging the NDP Energy Minister to come to the area so he can hear from the residents himself.

“I want the Minister to see, first-hand, the kinds of problems the NDP’s careless implementation of their energy plan is causing,” he said.

The Progressive Conservatives, on behalf of Nova Scotia ratepayers, are intervening in the upcoming UARB hearing into Nova Scotia Power’s request for a six per cent electricity rate increase over the next two years.

The Progressive Conservatives have brought forward five new pieces of legislation and an amendment aimed at tackling higher power rates, but none were passed by the NDP majority.
