Congratulations to Dianne on becoming President of Windshare, Canada’s first wind energy cooperative. Together with Toronto Hydro, Windshare owns and operates the highly visible turbine at the Toronto waterfront that has done so much to build support for wind energy in Ontario.

Wind energy is the fastest growing form of renewable electricity generation, and is much more economical than solar. Local, distributed power generation can also help keep the lights on when transmission grids go down, as Ontario is likely to experience with greater frequency. Unfortunately, recent provincial rules (including the 5 km offshore exclusion zone) have made it much less likely that we will see any more urban turbines in Ontario.
