Why we don’t need the wind turbines in Windsor anymore
With the wind-power industry booming in Canada, Windsor residents are concerned the city may lose the power that’s supposed to keep it humming.
The wind turbines that dot the city have long been part of the city’s industrial heritage, but the turbines in question are now obsolete and will soon be shut down, according to the city.
“Wind turbines were there in Windsor for more than 50 years,” said city councillor David Brown.
“They’ve been there for a long time, they’re still there, they’ve never been replaced.”
“And if they are, then they’re a liability to the whole industry.
And we’re not going to be able to operate as a community, as a city, without having that facility.”
The turbines that are still in place are not operating on a regular basis.
They are part of an industrial service enterprise, which is essentially a business run by the government to provide electricity to industrial businesses.
They provide electricity for businesses and industrial facilities, including the Windsor Hotel, the Windsor International Airport, and other facilities in Windsor.
The turbines also provide power to other buildings that have a connection to the Windsor Electric Generating Station, including Windsor Town Hall and the Windsor Opera House.
Windsor’s Industrial Services Corporation has a contract with the Windsor Industrial Power Corporation to operate the wind turbine.
A spokesperson for Windsor Industrial Services said they are in the process of reviewing their contract with Windsor Electric.
