RDI is a strong supporter of renewable energy development provided the windfarms are located far enough away from residential areas and houses to limit and/or avoid unnecessary visual impacts. Wind generation is one of many types of renewable, non-depleting sources of energy. Other forms include solar, biomass, hydrogen and fuel cells, hydrogen fusion, and geothermal. Wind turbines can be very large and visually disruptive, some reaching 200 m in height of the vertical blade, regional plans should be enacted to seek the most efficient and least disruptive locations for their placement.
Wind Farm Reference Material - an examination of the EDP Renewables' Sharp Hills Wind Generation project around Sedalia, Alberta. These links include the final determination by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC), and the supporting evidence of Dr. Ken Fairhurst, RDI Resource Design Inc (RDI) produced for the Clearview Group of concerned local residents. The photo-montage above was produced by RDI with windPRO Wind Generation software and on-site photography taken by K.B. Fairhurst in 2018. RDI produced a short animation of the wind farm:
