Brookfield Power says that it has agreed with the Ontario Power Authority to terminate its renewable energy supply arrangement for its proposed 49.5 MW wind energy project in the town of the Blue Mountains.

Given the delays encountered with the municipality's development process, Brookfield Power is unable to obtain the necessary permits to construct the project within the timelines imposed by the contract. Brookfield Power will not proceed at the present time with any further permitting activities for the Blue Highlands Wind Energy Project but will pursue the development of several other wind power projects within Ontario, the company says.
