Southgate councillors are looking over a proposal for a mega solar-wind energy farm.

It’s a partnership of Samsung Renewable Energy and Pattern Energy. The development will involve some 40 wind turbines in the east half of Southgate.

The partnership has also secured 700 acres of leased land in the northwest part of Southgate for its ground-mounted solar farm.

Southgate farmer Don Lewis, a former township Mayor, likes the proposal for a large solar energy development. He’s pleased that the proposal would make use of Class 4 agricultural land to contribute to green energy.

Pattern Energy spokesperson Colin Edwards says the development will enter the environmental assessment stage just as soon as it gets the green light from Southgate council. If all goes well it should be up and running by 2016.
