Residents will have another opportunity to find out more about the Otter Creek wind turbine development that is planned for north of Wallaceburg.

A public meeting is scheduled for Jan. 30 from 5-8 p.m. at the Clubhouse at Baldoon.

The Otter Creek wind farm project has plans to submit an application to the Ministry of Environment for a renewable energy approval (REA) in the near future. That report and application is now available for public review, at the Wallaceburg municipal centre and Wallaceburg library.

The project will include 12 wind turbines.

Otter Creek Wind Farm has also recently opened a community engagement office, located on Nelson Street.

The Otter Creek Wind Farm project is a partnership among Renewable Energy Systems Canada (RES) and Boralex Inc., as well as Walpole Island First Nations. The project was one of five wind farm projects approved by the province earlier this year.

The project, which would have a generating capacity of up to 50MW, is bounded by Stewart Line and McCreary Line to the south, Whitebread Line and Kent Line (west of Mandaumin Road) to the north, Mandaumin Road to the east and Payne Road to the west.

Of the 12 locations, one wind turbine is proposed to be west of Highway 40. Five are between Highway 40 and Forhan Road. Three are east of Kimball Road and west of Pretty Road. Three more are planned to go just east of Brigden Road

The project is expected to be operational by late 2019.

The Otter Creek wind farm area is north of Wallaceburg and just below the Lambton County border.

Additional information about the project is available on project website: www.ottercreekwindfarm.ca
