Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description:
    • The proponent proposes to construct and operate a single wind turbine generator (WTG) in the municipal boundaries of the Town of Charlottetown, Labrador. The WTG is planned to be located to the north of the Town and will require construction of a 350 metre access road for connection to the existing road network. The proposed WTG is a conical tubular steel tower with a maximum hub height of 60 metres and a three bladed rotor diameter of between 30 and 50 metres. The proposed power generation from the single WTG is between 225 and 660 kilowatts (kW). Power from the WTG will supplement the existing diesel generating plant and is to be sold to Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro for distribution and resale to customers. The access road will be 4.5 metres wide and construction will also include power and telephone transmission lines for connection to the local grid.
