The local office of the Integrated Land Management Bureau has received another application for an investigative permit for wind power on a section of Crown land near Prince George.
The application is from a Vancouver company wishing to investigate a potential wind energy project and to install wind monitoring masts on two sections of land about 40 kilometres west of the city, north of Highway 16 near Isle Pierre.
Last month, the bureau received a similar application from C-Free Power Corp., a renewable energy company interested in a 45-kilometre plot between Eskers and Stuart River provincial parks.
Another Vancouver company – Natural Power Consultants – plans to investigate the potential for a wind park at Mount George near Tabor Mountain. The estimated maximum output of this project is 250 megawatts, possibly enough to power every home in the Fraser-Fort George Regional District.
