The Ontario Ministry of the Environment has granted a renewable energy approval (REA) for the 58.32 MW Bow Lake Wind Project.

In 2012, Batchewana First Nation (BFN) and BluEarth Renewables formed partnerships to develop the project through the establishment of Nodin Kitagan LP and Nodin Kitagan 2 LP. The parties say Nodin Kitagan represents one of the largest economic partnerships between a First Nation and a wind energy developer in Canada.

Bow Lake is being developed in the district of Algoma, approximately 80 km north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, within the traditional territory of BFN. Nodin Kitagan estimates that Bow Lake will employ approximately 80 people to construct the facility, and once constructed, up to seven people will be required to operate the facility.

"The renewable energy approval is the culmination of over six years of public engagement and rigorous environmental and technical studies,” says Kent Brown, president and CEO of BluEarth. “We are very pleased to be moving forward toward the construction of the Bow Lake Wind Project.”
