Ontario Residents Support Wind Farms

NAW Staff, Monday 30 July 2007 - 10:47:22

According to a recent survey conducted by Innovative Research Group Inc. (IRG), the majority of Ontario, Canada, residents who live in areas where wind development projects are in place support these projects and wind energy in general.

Nine in 10 residents agree that wind energy is an environmentally friendly way to meet Ontario’s energy needs, while two-thirds strongly agree renewable energy is the responsible thing to do, IRG says.

In addition, the survey found that three out of four residents believe wind farms symbolize a greener future for Canada, and 89% of respondents who live within one mile of a wind farm support its development. Seven in 10 are "not nervous" about having a wind farm located near them.
