Calgary, Alberta, Canada, April 11, 2012 — Canadian wind farm developer Shear Wind Inc. won an environmental approval of its proposed 100 MW Willowridge wind project in the province of Alberta.
The Alberta Sustainable Resource Development has approved the environmental reports and studies carried out by Shear Wind, the proposed wind turbine locations and the related mitigation measures for the project.
Shear Wind said it had worked for six years on the project and estimated that the project site was capable of generating up to 400 GWh of power a year.
Shear Wind is also working on wind power projects in the province of Nova Scotia. The company plans to offer up to 80 MW at its Glen Dhu South site and up to 50 MW at the Canaan Mountain site in response to a request for proposals for renewable energy in the province.
