Wind power project proposed in Blue Hills, Sask.; Algonquin Power tries again after Chaplin plan rejected

Algonquin Power is taking another stab at a wind power project in Saskatchewan, after its original location near Chaplin raised environmental concerns. It’s now eyeing a 177-megawatt wind project in the Blue Hills area of southwest Saskatchewan. The proposed site is between Herbert and Neidpath, east of Swift Current. The provincial government rejected Algonquin’s original Chaplin site near a shorebird habitat. “The location and the size of this project were the concerns that the public raised,” said Environment Minister Scott . . .

Second wind for power project, if it blows over well with landowners

A 177 megawatt wind turbine project is getting a second chance in southwest Saskatchewan, but first has to pass the test with the province and landowners in the area. SaskPower and Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. announced Thursday a new location for a wind farm originally planned for a site near Chaplin. Environmental concerns  – it was too close to a migratory bird flight path – led to a needed change of location for the proposed 77 wind turbines. That new . . . Complete story »

Little disclosure on wind turbine bird mortality

I just read “What’s a few chopped up birds” (From The Top of the Pile, Sept. 22) on wind turbines and bird deaths in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Way to go Saskatchewan for actually taking this issue seriously. We’ve never had this happen in Ontario! I’m from southwestern Ontario, but moved to New Brunswick two years ago when the turbines went up. For six years I fought them, went to tribunal hearings, videotaped the scummy company Nextera destroying an active eagle . . . Complete story »

Chaplin Lake wind turbine project rejected over concerns for birds

The Saskatchewan government has rejected a proposed wind turbine project near a lake popular with migratory birds. The Ministry of Environment announced Monday it has denied Algonquin Power’s idea to build a 177-megawatt wind farm with a possible 79 turbines near Chaplin Lake, some 150 kilometres west of Regina.

The Hat a hub for green energy?

The man leading the charge to create a community-owned wind energy and solar field near Swift Current says the model could be exported across the provincial boundary to Alberta. Here, where the Alberta government has pledged support for such projects, a deregulated grid would be easier to connect to, and the same wind and solar resources are in place. James Glennie is the president of Sask Wind, a Saskatoon-based enterprise which plans to build a $90-million renewable energy facility and . . . Complete story »
