AI – Harrison on Viability

John Harrison has been working on a letter to Algonquin and potential banking backers telling them of all the risks that they ought to consider with the Amherst Island project.  I first posted on his letter here.  Since then he had continued adding to the letter until now it serves as a very nice summation of all of the potential problems association with wind energy projects.

Problems like noise, under-performance, birds and local opposition.  Perhaps more importantly, he has detailed explanations of the noise and under-performance issues.  These explanations, while they were specifically drawn up for Amherst Island, explain the underlying issues and provide real-life examples of how they affect the AI project.  Highly recommended reading for everyone.
