Ontario approves 58 MW wind power project

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment has granted a Renewable Energy Approval for the 58.32 MW Bow Lake Wind Project. Nodin Kitagan is a partnership between Batchewana First Nation and BluEarth Renewables Inc., a developer of wind power projects.

Bow Lake is being developed in the district of Algoma, about 50 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario within the traditional territory of BFN.

Once constructed, Bow Lake will generate enough renewable power for about 15,000 homes. Nodin Kitagan estimates that Bow Lake will employ about 80 people to construct the facility and once constructed, up to seven people will be required to operate the facility.

Beyond job creation during construction, operations and decommissioning, the project will also generate considerable investment in the local economy through procurement of supplies and services.
