Are wind companies being allowed to build extra turbines?

The Summerhaven Project had a FIT Contract Offered April 2010 for 125 MW. The Ontario Ministry of Environment issued an approval

“for the construction, installation, operation, use and retiring of a wind facility, with a total name plate capacity of 131.04 megawatts (MW)” [emphasis added]

so that the company can install 59 turbines. Are wind companies now being allowed to install more turbines than they have a contract for?
