Big Thunder Wind Park: City Submits Comments on Renewable Energy Approval Submission


June 12, 2013 – The City of Thunder Bay has provided its comments to the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) regarding the final Renewable Energy Approval (REA) submission for Horizon Wind Inc.’s Big Thunder Wind Park. The summary of comments and considerations comes following an independent third party review of the REA submitted to the MOE by Horizon in April.

Dillon Consulting Limited was retained by the City to carry out a review of the final REA submission for the Big Thunder Wind Park project. The purpose of the review is to determine how prior comments by the City were addressed by Horizon in the final reports, and to identify significant changes between reports previously submitted to the City and the MOE.

The Dillon Report is available at the Office of the City Clerk at City.
