Wind Expert to Outline RE Tariff Potential

April 23, 2004 [] On Tuesday, April 27, Paul Gipe will explain to members of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture in Huron and Bruce Counties how farmers can use Advanced Renewable Tariffs (ARTs) to deliver a new cash crop: wind-generated electricity. According to Gipe, ARTs allow farmers to connect their wind turbines to the grid without a lot of paperwork, and they guarantee a fixed price for a fixed period of time. Gipe said that if the province’s new energy policy incorporates the tariffs his association proposed, Ontario farmers could earn billions in new revenue, spurring a rural economic revival and producing up to one-third of the province’s electricity. The presentation to the OFA will be held at the Community Center, 180 Community Center Road, Holmesville just off Highway 8 between Clinton and Goderich. The program begins at 8:00 pm, Tuesday, April 27, 2004. Gipe is the author of several books on wind energy, including the recently released “Wind Power: Renewable Energy for Home, Farm, and Business.”
