Public meeting on wind farm proposal

MOOREFIELD - Another large company seeking a wind farm in Mapleton Township will next week host a public meeting about the proposal.

Nextera Energy Canada invites interested parties to attend the Moorefield community centre on Dec. 2 between 5 and 8pm to discuss its proposed Conestogo Wind Farm Project, south of Arthur.

Nextera Energy is proposing 12 wind turbines with an overall electrical generation capa­city of between 18 to 25.3 mega­watts and will connect to the transmission grid along High­way 6. Although the lands are primarily within Mapleton Town­ship, a portion are in the Township of Wellington North, just south of Arthur, on the west side of Highway 6.

The meeting will be held to provide a general overview of the project and to seek public input.
