Suncor Energy has asked the Ontario Energy Board for permission to build 15 km of high voltage transmission lines in Lambton Shores to deliver power from the company’s proposed Cedar Point Wind Energy Project to the province’s electricity grid.

The company is planning to build 46 wind turbines in Lambton Shores, Plympton-Wyoming and Warwick Township and the transmission lines are proposed to run from a substation near Cedar Point Line and Fuller Road near Forest, to a substation off Thomson Line expected to be built as part of NextEra Energy’s Jericho Wind Project.

The Ontario Energy Board, a public agency that regulates the province’s electricity and natural gas industries, is accepting submissions from the public on Suncor’s application until March 13. That’s also the deadline for individuals and organizations to submit a request to be intervenors at the hearing, with the ability to provide evidence, argue their position and submit questions to Suncor.
