Tories zap 200+ Southwestern Ontario green energy contracts

More than 200 Southwestern Ontario projects, including one of the most controversial wind farms in Ontario, are among the death toll of the new Tory government’s mass cancellation of contracts with renewable energy producers.

The doomed projects, announced by Doug Ford’s government as it underlined its vow to cut electricity bills by 12 per cent, number 758 provincewide including proposed wind farms with highrise-sized turbines and several hydro-electric projects.

Chicago-based Invenergy’s Strong Breeze wind farm project in Dutton Dunwich was imposed under the former Liberal government, even though the rural community southwest of London voted against such projects in the first referendum of its kind in Ontario.
