Finavera Renewables Inc., a Vancouver, British Columbia-based renewable energy project developer, has entered four proposed wind projects into the British Columbia Environmental Assessment (EA) process. The four projects - Wildmare, Bullmoose, Tumbler Ridge and Mount Clifford - are located in the province's Peace region and have a combined capacity of 366 MW, the company says.

As part of the EA process, Finavera will undertake environmental studies, engineering design and analysis, and community and First Nations consultations. In addition, the company plans to submit one or more of the projects into the next British Columbia Hydro call for tenders (expected this fall). If successful, the call for tenders would provide a long-term power purchase agreement for the projects as one possible route to market for generated electricity, Finavera says.

The proposed Wildmare Wind Energy Project would consist of approximately 37 wind turbines for a capacity of 74 MW. The Bullmoose Wind Energy Project would hold approximately 56 turbines for a capacity of 112 MW. The Tumbler Ridge Wind Energy Project would consist of approximately 50 wind turbine generators for a capacity of 100 MW, and the Mount Clifford Wind Energy Project would comprise approximately 40 turbines for a capacity of 80 MW.
