Richmond, British Columbia-based EPCOR Utilities Inc., through its indirect wholly owned subsidiary EPCOR Power Development Limited Partnership, has announced that the application for an environmental assessment certificate for the Quality Wind Project (QWP) has been accepted for review by the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office.

The 142.2 MW wind project is proposed for an area approximately 10 kilometers northeast of Tumbler Ridge in northeastern British Columbia. A formal 180-day review process has commenced to examine the project's potential impacts, including biophysical, social, economic, heritage and health components.

The QWP has been submitted to BC Hydro's Clean Call for Power. The proposed project site is located entirely on uninhabited Crown land that has been previously impacted by oil and gas activities, logging and a major forest fire in 2006.

Construction of the QWP will be subject to conditions such as regulatory approvals, economic and engineering assessments and successful negotiation of a power purchase agreement with BC Hydro.
