What involvement does the community have in a wind energy project?

Building a strong partnership with the community is critical to the success of every wind energy project. With community dialogue a vital component of our strategy, we start speaking with residents early in the project development process to introduce the project and solicit early feedback on our proposal. Our goals are to

  • establish a cooperative relationship with the community
  • listen to our neighbours
  • share information and
  • ensure our proposal aligns with the interests and priorities of the community

The proponents also meet with elected and appointed officials, civic associations, environmental groups and other community organizations. They also periodically share new information, as it becomes available, to provide updates to the community about the project.
