TILT's position on industrial wind development in the 1000 Islands

The Thousand Islands Land Trust (TILT) supports the concept of renewable energy and strongly advocates energy efficiency and conservation activities.

The long-term impact on the tourist-based economy, wildlife, health, property values and natural beauty of the Thousand Islands are all factors each person needs to consider in making decisions about industrial wind turbines.

The mission of TILT is to conserve the natural beauty, diverse wildlife habitats, water quality and outdoor recreation opportunities of the Thousand Islands region; TILT is therefore opposed to the siting of industrial wind turbines within the viewshed of the St. Lawrence River and its tributaries in the Thousand Islands region.
