Harrietsfield wind power project OK’d with conditions

A three-turbine wind project near Harrietsfield, Halifax County, has received provincial environmental approval, with conditions.

Environment Minister Randy Delorey gave the go-ahead to the Harrietsfield Williamswood wind farm on Tuesday. The 4.8-megawatt venture is being developed by Dartmouth-based Watts Wind 4 LP.

The conditions include implementing a bird and bat monitoring program, developing a moose protection plan and setting up a community liaison committee.

Construction is expected to start this fall, with turbines being operational early next year. The project will be built on private land off Fraser Road.

The wind farm is being developed under the province’s community feed-in tariff program. COMFIT encourages local groups, including municipalities, First Nations and non-profits, to own and operate small-scale renewable energy projects by giving them a long-term contract to supply electricity to Nova Scotia Power at a fixed price.
