Hehe... from June 2013, from my own (new to me) neighbourhood: "Scarborough could have been home to wind turbines in lake: Toronto Hydro"
http://www.insidetoronto.com/news-story ... nto-hydro/
"monthly wind speed measurements Toronto Hydro released this week.
The measurements are from an anemometer the utility installed a kilometre off East Point Park in Lake Ontario."
"Built to record wind speeds at a 90-metre height, the device was as hated by many area residents as the idea of an offshore wind farm - up to 60 turbines two to four kilometres into the lake - the anemometer could have supported by gathering data from June 2010 to August 2012."
"Toronto Hydro summary data, average monthly wind 7.4 metres per second."
EDIT: From Feb, 2011 "Ontario government suspends all offshore wind turbine projects"

May interest: "There's an 80-fold increase in wind turbines happening across Ontario"
