A Renewable Energy Approval (REA) has been issued to Ganaraska Nominee Ltd. (Capstone Power Development) to engage in a renewable energy project in respect of a Class 4 wind facility consisting of the construction, installation, operation, use and retiring of 9 wind turbines, with a total name plate capacity of 17.6 MW. The wind facility will be connected to Hydro One Networks Inc.’s distribution system.
This Class 4 wind facility, known as ZEP Wind Farm Ganaraska, consists generally of 9 wind turbine generators, access roads, an internal underground collector system, and a transformer substation. The wind facility is located in the Municipality of Clarington, Regional Municipality of Durham, Ontario.
Note that since the REA application was deemed complete on January 7, 2014, Ganaraska Nominee Ltd. made minor changes to the project, which include the following:
- Removal of Turbine 2 and Turbine 7 from the project layout, resulting in a reduction in the number of wind turbine generators to be constructed, from 10 to 9; and
- Decrease in the total name plate capacity of the project, from 20 MW to 17.6 MW. Read more
