Municipality of Kincardine had an education on the effects of stray voltage and electrical pollution caused by area wind power projects last week.
Ripley’s David Colling, an expert and electrical pollution tester, has tested over 300 homes and farms within four Ontario wind projects over the last five years.
After working with stray voltage issues on dairy farms, the added issue of wind turbines was a surprise to him when he discovered electrical pollution in nearby homes.
“I never would have believed this would have happened,” said Colling regarding the “wind victims” he has come to know.
