Study to determine if Coniston smokestacks can produce wind power  

Wind and environmental studies will be conducted to determine if two 120-metre dormant smokestacks in Coniston can be retrofitted with wind-powered generation systems.

The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp. is investing $100,000 in the studies to be done at the former Inco Ltd.
smelter in Coniston.

The studies will explore the potential for renewable energy production in Greater Sudbury, said Northern Development and Mines Minister Rick Bartolucci, who announced the funding.

Environmentally sustainable energy production is essential to making the North an attractive place to live, work and do business, said the Sudbury MPP, who chairs the NOHFC.

Funding is being provided through the fund’s Renewable Energy Program as part of the Ontario government’s Northern Prosperity Plan.

The plan aims to strengthen the North, listen to and serve northerners better, help the North compete globally and provide opportunities for northern residents.
