With the help of Windontario.ca here are some facts.
The cost of wind power will add $110,000,000,000.00 to our electrical bills. To grasp $110 billion:
$100 billion can buy 5,000,000 Honda Civics. We’re paying 11-13.5 cents per kwh for wind power. The average price for wind power in the U.S. is 7 cents. Ontario is the only province/state that charges HST, delivery, and regulatory fees on electricity. Wind companies routinely sue municipalities/persons who get in their way. The government supplies lawyers to back a wind company; but has never backed a municipality, group or person. Ontario has too much power and we either, pay the USA & Quebec to get rid of the excess or charge 2.5 per kwh. In 2013 alone, the loss was $1 billion which will cost your household an additional $250. Quebec turns around and sells our hydro at 5 cents per kwh to bordering States.
Hopefully the NDP gets smart and brings Kathleen Wynne (McGuinity Jr.) down.
