Description of Instrument:

This posting is for a proposed Renewable Energy Approval by Windlectric Inc. for the Amherst Island Wind Energy Project, proposed to be located in Loyalist Township, County of Lennox and Addington. This is a Class 4 wind facility with a total expected generation capacity of up to 75 megawatts (MW).

The proposed facility is considered to be a Class 4 wind facility under Ontario Regulation 359/09 (O. Reg.359/09) Renewable Energy Approvals under Part V.0.1 of the Environmental Protection Act.

The proposed project modification, which is described in detail in the modification documents available on the applicant’s website (see link in the Additional Information section of this posting), consists of:

  1. Including the temporary concrete batch plant as part of the Renewable Energy Approval application.
