Court issues injunction against Saskatchewan windfarm

September 3, 2010

The Saskatchewan Leader-Post is reporting that a Saskatchewan court has issued an interim injunction temporarily stopping construction of a windfarm near Moosomin.

The $60 million, 25 MW Red Lily windfarm, owned by Algonquin Power and Gaia Energy, was to have come into service late in 2010 or early in 2011.

The project was to have been constructed with minimum setbacks of 550 metres from residences.  Landowners are seeking to have turbines at least 2000 metres from residences.

The interim injunction stops "all construction-related activity".  Further arguments on the injunction application will be heard on September 7.
