20MW Pukwis wind project in southern Ontario shelved

October 2, 2012
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.

Potential buyers disappear after wind turbine notices sent

January 20, 2012

… put their 48-acre horse farm near Stayner up for sale last summer for $1.25 million.

Then a wind developer sent out notices of its plans to put up big wind turbines on a neighbouring farm.

“Prior to that time, we had a lot of action,” … “But from that moment on, none.”
