20MW Pukwis wind project in southern Ontario shelved

The 20MW Pukwis aboriginal feed-in tariff wind project in southern Ontario has been shelved.

The project was to be jointly owned by the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation and the Pukwis Energy Co-op.

Developer Windfall Ecology Centre executive director Brent Kopperson said the project no longer has a contract with the Ontario Power Authority.

“It’s been put on long-term hold,” he said, but declined to give details.

The proponents signed a 20-year FiT contract with the Ontario Power Authority in 2010.

It included a 1.5 cents/kWh bonus payment for aboriginal-owned projects, an 11% premium over the standard 13.5 cents/kWhr rate.
