Mitsubishi eyes Great Lakes for offshore wind development

Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp. continues to explore the possibility of building an offshore wind project in Lake Erie to deliver power for New York state, as development zones off the Atlantic Coast remain in limited supply. Diamond Offshore Wind, a unit of Mitsubishi Corp., stirred up local opposition last year after submitting an interconnection request with New York’s grid operator for potential capacity in eastern Lake Erie. The developer still believes offshore wind turbines are a good solution for the Great . . . Complete story »

Renewable energy company with ties to a play near Suffield will propose a large wind farm near Shaunavon

A Quebec-based renewable power developer says it will submit a major wind farm proposal near Shaunavon into SaskPower’s current round of green energy procurement. Innergex officials hosted a public information session online on Thursday to lay out plans and answer questions about the “Gusty Point” wind farm. It would be located east of Shaunavon and, if built to the proposed 200-megawatt capacity, could require up to 50 turbines. The project, estimated to cost $200 million, would require about 250 construction . . . Complete story »

Shut it down

An open letter to the Ontario government: I am a resident of Crysler. My new view from my bedroom window is of one of the Nation Rise Wind Farm turbines. Can any of you honestly say this is OK? Who will guarantee that our health is not in jeopardy? Who will guarantee our well water will not be affected? Who will guarantee we won’t hear the swooshing of those enormous blades or be affected by infrasound? Who will guarantee our . . . Complete story »

Atlantic Loop will help expand wind energy sector, P.E.I. MP says

A multimillion-dollar promise to fund an Atlantic Loop will allow wind energy to be exported more easily and create new jobs in rural areas, says a P.E.I. MP. Egmont MP Bobby Morrissey said the province continues to struggle to get its green wind energy to larger markets in Quebec, Ontario and the U.S., and that is holding the industry back from future growth. In Wednesday’s speech from the throne, the federal government announced it would “transform how we power our . . . Complete story »

Alberta could lead Canada in wind and solar power by 2025, expert says

Growth in Alberta’s renewable energy sector should continue its upward trend, experts say, with one forecast anticipating a surge of projects that could have the province poised to be the Canadian leader in utility-scale wind and solar capacity as early as 2025. Rystad Energy tracks utility-scale wind and solar assets with at least one MWac (megawatt alternating current) in capacity. It forecasts that 83 per cent of the combined utility-scale wind and solar capacity built in Canada over the next . . . Complete story »
