Province provides update on wind development process

The Provincial Government provided an update on Tuesday on wind generation.

The Department of Industry, Energy and Technology is launching a call for the submission of Nominations of Areas of Interest for wind energy projects in the province. The call is open for any available Crown lands within the province. Interested respondents are not limited to a geographic size for a given submission, or in the number of submissions.

Nominations close on October 1, 2022.

From there a land bid process will be launched later this year. Even though some companies may have already submitted a request for Crown lands for wind development, no Crown lands have been approved and will not be awarded until a competitive bid process occurs.

Wind development projects will need to undergo an environmental assessment.

Back in April, the government announced an end to the moratorium on wind development.
