Toronto-based SkyPower Corp. and Nova Scotia-based Scotian Windfields have announced that Nova Scotia Environment has granted environmental approval for 25.5 MW worth of wind turbine capacity for the Digby wind power project in Digby, Nova Scotia.

SkyPower and Scotian Windfields had originally filed a request for approval for a 30 MW project. As part of the environmental assessment approval process, three of the proposed 4.5 MW wind turbines were excluded from the approval and will require relocation, subject to further consultation with the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division regarding wildlife connectivity and Nova Scotia Environment (NSE) regarding sound and setbacks.

The proposed relocation of the turbines will be submitted shortly to the NSE Environmental Assessment Branch for review and further consideration.

Over the next few weeks, SkyPower and Scotian Windfields will continue to work closely with their partners, engineers and local constituents to finalize their revised schedule and hope to commence construction of this project in the near future.
