A Halifax renewable energy developer is seeking environmental approval for a proposed wind farm in Piedmont, Pictou County.
Natural Forces Wind Inc. filed the Aulds Mountain wind project with the provincial Environment Department on Friday.
The 4.6-megawatt project would consist of two turbines.
If approved, construction is slated to start next spring or summer, with the turbines being operational in the fall.
The project is being developed under the province’s community feed-in tariff program, which encourages local ownership of small renewable energy projects. The program gives power producers a long-term fixed price for the electricity they sell to Nova Scotia Power.
