Canadian Hydro Developers Inc. anticipates the 132 MW Melancthon II Wind Project will be in service by Nov. 30. The previous completion date was June 30.

These changes are the result of Canadian Hydro's assessment of the impact on Melancthon II from the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearings to approve amendments to the official plans and zoning bylaws in the Melancthon and Amaranth townships. The new date for Melancthon II has no impact on Canadian Hydro's 20-year renewable energy supply contract with the Ontario Power Authority.

The OMB approved the Melancthon Township portion of Melancthon II in July 2007. Since then, Canadian Hydro commenced site-servicing and select construction in that township, completing the installation of all 66 wind turbine foundations and expansion of the operations and maintenance building prior to the end of 2007.
