Finavera Tumbler Ridge Wind Project in Peace River Region of British Columbia Moves Forward

The British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office has completed its review of Vancouver-based Finavera Wind Energy's proposed 47 MW Tumbler Ridge Wind Energy Project in the Peace River region of North-Eastern British Columbia and referred the application to the province's environment and energy ministers for a decision.

Finavera Wind Energy President and COO Peter Leighton stated that, “The Tumbler Ridge application is the result of several years of environmental studies, First Nations and community consultation, and detailed analysis of potential impacts. The review process with the Environmental Assessment Office is now complete and we look forward to a positive decision from the provincial government. Finavera is confident the project can be built with minimal environmental impacts and would deliver clean, renewable electricity to British Columbians. An Environmental Assessment Certificate, combined with a long term power purchase agreement with BC Hydro that is already in place, would allow the project to move forward towards construction in late 2012.”
