No this was a wind farm setup. Each blade was as long as a
transport truck trailer with a bit of overhang. Shelborne
area is the windest in Ontario also the highest
I work in an auto plant near there, they were trying to get
us to buy the power. I also know of a guy in that area
who bought land and thought he was going to build
Ontario Hydro wanted $30,000 to put in the poles and wire
to his land. First he went off grid 1kw solar 1kw wind
ended up hooking up to the grid and selling hydro
Not every windmill site gets approval There was a site
approved around Shelburne not every farmer approached in
the area got one
Batteries at best last 5 years just because you can get them
at low cost this time remember that the system will need
maintenance with battery replacement periodically.
Think propane for cloths dryer and cooking stove,
When you use a dishwasher if you wait until it’s full which is
energy efficent it really just a place to store dirty dishes
and if you do them after every meal you use to much hydro
Had one when the kids were small and when it broke after
12 years I refused to replace it and now even my wife
admits the house stays cleaner. Most systems have battery
storage for 3 days windmill with a solar panel or 2
1kwhr generation wind and 1kw solar is pretty standard
3kw/hr * 24hrs * 30 days = 2160kw Check your hydro bill
and yes thats only if the wind blows 100%
Lost their contract from a supplier maybe, I think this is
going to be a growth area in the future thanks to BP.
The only seafood I’ll be eating is Alaskan King Crab and
maybe getting a fishing licence. Let’s see do you pefer
mercury or a drop of oil with your seafood?
Would you have trusted the dutchman around power generating
equipment or in charge of the maintenance budget?
Here the windmill people offer farmers to lease the land
$6000 a year for the windmill on their farm, 40 foot blades
3 transport trucks just for the blades. What’s the farmer
gotta do “Nothing” can he grow $6000 dollars worth of crops
in the space they are asking for every year No so they grab it
Maybe he’d lease the water flow and some land
Looking a little north of Parry Sound trying to stay within 3 hours of Orillia for family. As for the hatchery only saw the real estate listing it as a closed down hatchery. Were you at an Ontario Hatchery, what kind of fish?
I’m not looking to make it the only part of my off grid experience. I just want to raise enough to eat and maybe bring in a little extra coin
Live in Orillia. Trust me there is not much being delveloped that isn’t oil based agriculture and anyone trying too much is hassled. New building codes require P-eng stamped drawings $1500 – $2000 additional cost to the average house and the worst part is you have to build to someone else’s specs who has one thing on his/her mind CoverYourA$$. Just helped a friend build just north of ParrySound figured it cost him at least an extra $10,000 dollars more than it should have. Defenetly looking for a unassumed township with no building codes.
I saw a closed fish hachery for sale in this area and don’t here or see of much happening.
https://www.aquaponicscommunity.com/ found this and it makes sense
Much appreciated catch the article in Todays Toronto Sun they call it vertical farming
This would work for a hot summers day But here in Canada it would be useless in Winter. Frost goes down 4 feet and even -10 degrees would require a long runAugust 6, 2010 at 12:00 am in reply to: Vacant Lot Available (free rent) – Kansas City, MO, 64100 – 0.11 Acres #64612
What are the building codes in this area?
