Kaizer Meadow wind project OKd

A small Lunenburg County wind project received environmental approval from the province Thursday.

Environment Minister Sterling Belliveau gave the Kaizer Meadow wind project the green light, with conditions.

The project, proposed by the Municipality of the District of Chester, involves a single two-megawatt turbine.

The turbine is being erected as part of the province’s community feed-in tariff program, which encourages local groups to undertake renewable energy projects to produce electricity for Nova Scotia Power.

The conditions include conducting a study of bird and plant species prior to construction and having programs in place to monitor noise and shadow flicker.
