NAW Staff, Monday 23 July 2007 - 12:23:53

The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) have approved construction of Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge's wind power project in Bruce County, Ontario. The OMB officially ruled in favor of the project, while the MOE has indicated that the project is compliant with its noise guidelines.

The wind farm is expected to produce 182 MW of electricity and, on completion, be one of the largest wind power projects in Canada, according to Enbridge.

"This project will deliver clean, renewable energy in Ontario, which will help diversify our electricity supply mix and enhance air quality throughout the province," says the Honourable Dwight Duncan, Ontario's Energy Minister. "The McGuinty government is delivering on its promise to increase the amount of renewable energy in Ontario."
