Wind turbines in shallow waters surrounding P.E.I. offer energy options

Premier MacLauchlan seems to have made a positive impression in Paris. He states P.E.I. and islanders as a whole, will indeed need to make changes and a new energy strategy will be announced in the New Year.

May I suggest, Mr. Premier, you make use of the shallow waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northumberland Strait. The Netherlands has hundreds of wind turbines in the waters off their coast.

The Gulf and Strait do not have large ships navigating near P.E.I. and the fishers are close enough to the shore they would not be effected. To make this even better for islanders, have these turbines owned and operated by the taxpayers so any profits remain on P.E.I. A win(d) win(d) solution.
