Martock Ridge Community Wind Project

Martock Wind Project Environmental Assessement was approved by the Minister of Environment on July 24, 2013. You can view the relevant documents and comments on the Nova Scotia Government web site click here. Or scroll down on this page for a record of our associated documents. 
 

Background

A certificate of approval was awarded to Scotian Wind under the Community Feed-In-Tariff (ComFIT) program of the Nova Scotia provincial government on April 16, 2012 for the Martock Ridge Community Wind Project. On August 15th Scotian Wind held a public open house to share project information with the residents of Martock Ridge and surrounding area at the Hants County War Memorial Community Centre. This meeting was just the beginning of an open dialogue that we will pursue with the public in the Martock Ridge area throughout the build process.

This page is dedicated to holding documents and information for access by the general public and local residents to stay up to date on all aspects of project development. In the interest of transparency and public engagement, we will continue to add information to this page as we receive it. Do not hesitate to call or email us with questions regarding this project. See our contact information at the bottom of this page.

 

Project Documents

  • Certificate of Award
  • Environmental Impact Statement
  • Environmental Assessment Approval Document from Department of Environment - July 24, 2013
     
  • An Environmental Assessment (EA) is a thorough investigation into ecological, archaeological and socio-economic impacts using methodologies defined under the Environment Act. In accordance with this act, wind energy projects 2MW or larger are required to undertake the EA process. In contrast, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is a preliminary investigation into many of the same issues, based on existing environmental data, and a site survey. In accordance with COMFIT requirements, potential impacts identified in the EIS must be studied further to determine the effect of the proposed project, and respective management/mitigation plans.
     
  • We will be following up on the recommendations as outlined in the Environmental Impact Statement and a full Environmental Assessment is being undertaken at this time. We will share the completed document on this site when it is published.
