Preneal has hired a consultancy firm to contact local organizations, including Northern Bruce Peninsula municipality, asking them to supply information to enable the consultant to collect information about the local environment so that they may submit it to the provincial government as part of their application. The consultant’s letter to these organizations says that they are commencing the consultation process early in the approval process. The letter can be found here.
The second map of the central portion of The Bruce Peninsula was provided by Preneal Canada Inc., a wind turbine developer, and a subsidiary of The Preneal Group, a Spanish company with its head office in Madrid.Preneal Canada Inc., is proposing to develop wind turbine installations in the area outlined on the map, and has signed leases to hundreds of acres of land in this area.
The top of the dotted line on the map is just south of Lindsay Road 20, while the most southerly part is close to the municipal boundary with South Bruce Peninsula.The planned project is for 150 MW, which translates to about 75 wind turbines of the size that are currently being built in other parts of Ontario. These newer wind turbines are much larger than the three currently at Ferndale. For example, the blades may be compared in size to a Boeing 747.A consultancy firm, hired by Preneal Canada Inc., has informed Northern Bruce Peninsula council that it is commencing to carry out a “Natural Heritage Assessment Report,” and a “Water Body Assessment and Impact Report” which will be part of the application process to be submitted to the provincial government from Preneal Canada Inc.
