Wind project closer to reality near Tumbler Ridge

A proposed wind project near Tumbler Ridge has received an environmental assessment certificate.

The Thunder Mountain Wind Limited Partnership is looking to develop a wind project approximately 45 kilometres southeast of Tumbler Ridge.

The proposed project would produce up to 320 megawatts of electricity per year, and could produce enough power annually for approximately 100,000 homes. It would consist of approximately 160 wind turbine generators, five substations, a 65-kilometre transmission line, access and maintenance roads, and associated infrastructure.

Before the project can proceed, stakeholders will have to obtain provincial licences, leases and other approvals.

The capital cost of the project is expected to be approximately $1 billion, and it should take six years to complete. The Province also says the project will create 120 jobs.
