We are writing to you today to advise that if wind turbines are erected on Amherst Island APAI will be retaining the services of a qualified engineer in order to measure stray voltage on the properties of APAI members.The baseline measurement will occur one week prior to the turbines beginning operation and will occur on a regular basis thereafter.The full letter, along with letters sent by their counsel on health and noise, and papers on ice throw and wildlife, can be accessed through this Amherst island Wind Info page.
If any stray voltage is found to have occurred following the beginning of operations, the turbine(s) nearest to the locale where the stray voltage has occurred will be identified. APAI will be applying to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice seeking an injunction to stop the operation of the turbine(s) responsible for the stray voltage.
Given that stray voltage is an established issue resulting from the operation of industrial wind turbines, in addition to injunctive relief, APAI and/or its members reserve the rights, amongst others, to bring further civil claims for damages
