Environmental Assessment

The Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Amherst Community Wind Farm has been approved by the Minister of Environment on February 17th 2015. The EA was registered on December 19th 2014 and was open for public comment until January 28th 2015. 

An EA is a tool that is used to predict and evaluate the environmental effects of the proposed Amherst Community Wind Farm to determine the acceptability of the project. In other words, it is used to determine the impact the project may have on the environment surrounding the project. The EA was conducted in accordance with the Nova Scotia Environmental Assessment Regulations.
