GEEQ Looking for Turbine Manufacturing Facility
CD98: Ashley DeGroote - July 24, 2009
While the idea of nuclear power gets shelved for the time being here in the area, plenty of discussion is sure to emerge surrounding alternative power sources. There are options of wind, solar and biomass already evident in and around Norfolk county to perhaps one day replace the outgoing coal plant in Nanticoke. Jim Elve of Grand Erie Energy Quest says we can look even further than just simply creating power itself. He says he would rather see some sort of renewable energy factory like a wind turbine manufacturing facility, not a farm. Elve says this could be the ticket out of the manufacturing slump being felt by an already vast number of capable workers in the area.
