Canadian Renewable Energy Corp. (CREC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Hydro, has announced that an Environmental Review Report/Environmental Impact Statement for its proposed Wolfe Island Wind Project is now available in draft form for stakeholder review and comment.
CREC's Wolfe Island Wind Project would be located in the township of Frontenac Islands, near Kingston, Ontario. As currently proposed, the project will consist of 86 wind turbines and produce a capacity of 198 MW. Key ancillary features include access roads, a transformer station, an operations and maintenance building, interconnection at Hydro One's Gardiners Transformer Station, and collector and transmission lines, CREC adds.
‘CREC is adapting the Environmental Screening Process to ensure an additional opportunity for stakeholders to participate in an open review of the diverse environmental issues associated with the project,’ says Canadian Hydro Developers' Geoff Carnegie, project manager.
CREC adds that hard copies of the draft statement and report can be accessed at government offices in Wolfe Island and Kingston, Ontario, and Cape Vincent, N.Y.
