New Website Aims To Engage Canadian Communities In Wind Energy Dialogue

NAW Staff, Thursday 07 March 2013 - 00:00:00

The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) has launched a new website - WindFacts.ca - designed to educate Canadians about wind energy and encourage a meaningful discussion about wind power within communities.

The website features wind energy facts, statistics, social-media tools and links to educational resources. It addresses several areas of interest related to Canadian wind power, including how wind energy works, the costs of wind power and its effects on health, the environment and wildlife.

"Wind energy enjoys high public support from coast to coast, but it's natural for Canadians to have questions about how various forms of energy may impact their consumer bill, the environment and what sort of benefits it can deliver to local communities," explains Chris Forrest, CanWEA’s vice president of communications and public affairs.

Wind energy has been the subject of ongoing controversy and political debate in Canada. Some opponents claim that wind energy has harmful effects on human health and the environment, and CanWEA is working to engage communities by providing facts and resources about wind energy.
