Shear Wind Inc. has announced that it has received environmental assessment approval for the Glen Dhu South Wind Power Project, which is planned for the Barney's River area in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, and is expected to have a capacity of around 80 MW.

The approval means that the government is satisfied that any adverse effects of significant environmental impacts resulting from the wind project can be adequately mitigated through compliance with the specified terms and conditions.

The approval is based upon the review of the conceptual design, environmental baseline information, impact predictions and mitigation presented by Shear Wind in its registration document.

"We are in the process of finalizing our submissions to respond to Nova Scotia Power Inc.'s request for proposals for renewable energy projects, anticipated to close in May, and have two sites which we plan to submit – the Glen Dhu South Project and our Canaan Mountain Project in Cumberland County," explains Mike Magnus, Shear Wind's president and CEO.
