Nova Scotia Power gets green light on controversial wind farm project  

Credit:  CTV Atlantic | April 26, 2013 | ctvnews.ca ~~

Nova Scotia Power’s portion of a major wind farm project received the green light today.

The provincial Utility and Review Board has approved the utility’s application for more than $93 million.

Nova Scotia Power is partnering with two private companies – Minas Basin Pulp and Power and Oxford Frozen Foods – to build the South Canoe Wind Farm Project.

The total cost is estimated at $200 million, but the project is not without controversy; Nova Scotia Power’s role and the risk to ratepayers have been criticized.

There are also concerns over the distance the turbines will be built from homes.

Chester Council gave it a green light last month, but a group of citizens have appealed the decision.

The project covers 34 turbines over 3,000 hectares near South Canoe Lake, which is located about 35 kilometres north of Chester.

Road construction in the area could begin as early as next month.
