Nova Scotia's Department of Environment and Labor has released the "Proponent's Guide to Wind Power Projects: Guide for preparing an Environmental Assessment Registration Document."

The manual, which provides information on documents and information required of developers who seek environmental approval for wind power projects, also includes detailed explanations of project considerations and possible obstacles, such as weather conditions, effects on wildlife, socioeconomic objections, and visual and noise impact.

"Through the use of this guide, the proponent can ensure that issues associated with wind power projects have been considered prior to the submission of the EA Registration Document (EA document), in order to avoid delays in the EA process," the guide's introduction notes. "Proponents with thoroughly prepared EA documents are less likely to be required by the Minister to submit additional information once the EA process has begun."

The guide can be downloaded at gov.ns.ca/enla/ea/docs/EAGuideWindPower.pdf.
