  • OSEA: Outdoor Farm Show - Farm the frontier in energy revolution
    60 per cent of the wind turbines Here farmers are in their silos signing individual land leases with commercial wind developers Many farmers have come to depend on the additional income from the lease to keep the family farm and continue farming Collaboration however provides many more benefits to farmers than individual leases Several studies undertaken in Iowa showed that the lease payments made to farmers by commercial wind project developers typically pale in comparison to the income the farmer could earn if he instead owned the turbine himself or in conjunction with other members of his local community For the community one of the main benefits of local ownership is the appeasement of opposition from residents who because they see no benefits accruing to them feel imposed upon by the nearby wind turbines When they realize as studies have shown that the community as a whole benefits from local ownership opponents have a tendency to be more accommodating while the local developer feels a greater responsibility and accountability towards his neighbours Communities also benefit financially Studies in the U S show that locally owned wind generation creates up to 10 times more economic activity in the local community and state than does wind generation owned by out of state companies When the owners are local residents they are more likely to purchase more local materials for construction and hire more local residents while profits stay in the community This differs from conventional energy systems like that of Ontario in which according to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities at least 75 cents of each dollar leaves the local economy The province as a whole also benefits because generating energy closer to where it is used saves the cost of transmitting and distributing the electricity and avoids the costly losses of electricity along lines when it is transmitted Local generation also saves the cost of building new transmission lines which the public pays for collectively To reap these benefits and its goal of 100 per cent renewable energy the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association has for nearly a decade been helping farmers First Nations co ops and community groups develop renewable energy projects Members such as the Norfolk Federation of Agriculture Countryside Energy Co op and Farmers for Economic Opportunities which represent many farmers are working closely with OSEA to get renewable energy projects up and running But it has been difficult with many bureaucratic barriers in the way and limited capacity on the grid systems The recently passed Green Energy Act for which OSEA along with the Ontario Federation of Agriculture campaigned and had a direct hand in shaping is meant to break down those barriers One way it does that is by making it easier for farmers or anyone to form energy co operatives Another is the feed in tariffs the premium long term prices paid for renewable energy which level the playing field for community groups so that they can t be undercut by commercial companies with lower prices
