What was this engagement about?
Innergex Wind Energy Inc. (Proponent) proposes to develop a wind energy located about 30 km south of Vanderhoof, B.C. Consisting of up to 70 wind turbines, the Project would generate up to 210 megawatts. It would also include substations, access roads, collector and transmission lines and related substation and operations centre.
The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act.
The Proponent must obtain an environmental assessment certificate before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project. However, prior to submission of an application (Application) for a certificate by the Proponent, the Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) must first approve Application Information Requirements.
The EAO held a 30-day public comment period from January 22, 2014 to February 21, 2014 on the proposed Nulki Hills Wind Project draft Application Information Requirements (AIR) document.
How can my contribution make a difference?
The intention of seeking public comments is to ensure that all potential effects – environmental, economic, social, heritage and health – that might result from the Project are identified for consideration as part of the assessment process.
Citizens were invited to comment online, by email, fax, mail or to attend an information session in Vanderhoof (Jan. 27).
