Risks To Tax Payers

Proponents acknowledge property values usually drop when new wind projects are built. The last few years have seen increased housing and cottage building in the area due to the outdoor and recreational opportunities. These projects certainly could result in less housing/cottage development due to decreased property values which is one of many reasons that turbine projects are not developed in residential and recreational activity land. 

The risk to tax payers go beyond those living in Wentworth Valley and surrounding communities.  Questions still remain unanswered, like who will pay for the decommissioning of these turbines when it comes to the end of their life span?  And how will this project effect the power rates for all Nova Scotians?
