Eastern Kings Council Says No Go - Votes down wind turbine application
On Thursday, October 22 the RMEK council voted against P.E.I. Energy Corporation's application for a wind turbine farm expansion in Eastern Kings. We can only imagine how difficult this process has been for members of the council and we appreciate the efforts they undertook to understand all sides of the issue, particularly the negative environmental impact.
We are also appreciative of all the EKCA supporters who donated time, money, insight and passion into the efforts to ensure Eastern Kings maintains its pristine beauty and complex ecosystem. The P.E.I. Energy Corporation has an opportunity to appeal so while we hope they now realize the community does not want the wind farm; the fight might not be over.
