I have previously voiced approval of Minister Patterson as being the most energetic and purposeful minister in the government. But now on reading his official nonsense, I may have to rethink. In my rethinking, I see possible political dislike.
It may be that the owners of the Classic Hotel are not committed supporters, so it naturally follows they would face official frustration. Why can’t the government clear hurdles and give willing assistance to get the turbine running?
That wishy-washy excuse, to wit “…requires judicious adherence to feasibility studies and grid interconnection processes, which are typically detailed and costly, but which are necessary to ensure reliable and stable supply of electricity and the safety of the grid,” speaks loudly of the non-desire to allow the turbine to work.
Here in Toronto, we have had many, many grid connections via solar panels and in lickity-split time.
As a past government official, I can point to the pertinent words that indicate a refusal to facilitate and to give permission, and these are; JUDICIOUS, FEASIBILITY, DETAILED, COSTLY, RELIABLE, SAFETY.
Sorry for you Classic Hotel owners, your goose is cooked. Just go ahead with your turbine. Get the technicians to limit the power generation (it can be done) and run lines to all the neighbours after getting them to sign a utilisation agreement.
You do not have to sign any agreement with the inefficient and uncooperative GPL.
Their problem should not be your problem. Their inefficiency should not restrict you in what is a good, sensible, efficient operation.
This is typical double-speak that politicians engage in … we will generate more reliable electricity at fair prices, but wait, bear in mind it is WE and not YOU! And that comes after the fact!
I am very disappointed in Minister Patterson and now I have to rethink my admiration of him.
