TILT's Position Statement on Siting Industrial Wind Turbines
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, wildlife habitats and recreational 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.
TILT also commented on a recent Watertown Daily Times article defending home rule. Click here to read the article (published January 2013)
