CCSAGE, which is comprised of citizens and business owners in Prince Edward County has, as its priorities:
- To SHARE credible information about the wind energy development issue with County residents, business owners and municipal government;
- To identify and promote ways to PROTECT the County from the adverse effects of uncontrolled, large-scale wind energy development in the County; and
- To CHALLENGE various aspects of Green Energy Act via a Judicial Review.
Our concerns include adverse social, economic or environmental effects of industrial wind turbines on:
- Human health, from turbine noise and infrasound.
- Residential property values and property rights.
- The natural environment — birds, bats, turtles and other wildlife.
- The County’s cultural heritage.
- Our local economy — tourism, wineries, creative businesses.
- Municipal control over land use.
- Provincial energy policy.
We work closely with other County groups dealing with the wind turbine issue, including assistance with fundraising:
- APPEC, the Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County.
- PECFN, Prince Edward County Field Naturalists.
