Ontario is moving away from fossil-fuel based, non-renewable energy sources, and toward natural sources that generate less pollution and will help improve Ontario's air quality.
Wind power is one of the fastest growing sources of electricity in the world.
Every wind turbine facility in Ontario must meet Ontario regulatory requirements for noise. These requirements are consistent with the 2009 World Health Organization noise limit of 40 decibels.
Ontario is a leader in establishing clear setbacks for renewable energy projects. Our setback of 550 metres for wind projects is one of the most stringent in North America and is based on the most up-to-date science.
