Wind farm near Moosomin on hold pending further study

Wind farm near Moosomin on hold pending further study

Following a public meeting on Thursday night, the council for the Rural Municipality of Martin has voted to strike a committee to look further into the proposed Red Lily Wind Farm project near Moosomin, Saskatchewan. The project, which is a partnership between Algonquin Power and Gaia Energy, would consist of 16 turbines producing 25 megawatts of power. The partners have contracted to sell the power to SaskPower.

The project had earlier received environmental assessment approval from the province, but the local municipality has decided to undertake further study into the potential impact of the turbines on local residents.
