Input sought on proposed wind farm near Chetwynd

It would be located approximately 55 kilometres northwest of Tumbler Ridge and 48 km south of Chetwynd, within PRRD and Treaty 8 territory. Up to 150 Wind Turbine Generators could be constructed, with the initial estimated capital investment for the Project at $1.5 billion.

The company anticipates the project will supply thousands of homes with what it calls clean, renewable power, and in addition, boost economic development and employment opportunities in the Peace Region.
