The proposed Taylor Wind Project is located in the Peace River Regional District of British Columbia near the community of Taylor. The proponent proposes to develop a wind farm of up to 400 MW that could include between 130 and 235 individual turbine locations on private land. The Project will contribute clean power to the provincial grid by converting renewable wind into electrical energy through the use of state-of-the-art mechanical turbine generators. The Taylor Wind Project is being developed for submission into future BC Hydro power calls.
Our Role in the Project
EDI prepared and submitted wildlife, vegetation, aquatic and hydrlogy baseline technical reports for the environmental impact assessment for the Talyor Wind Farm Project. Along with completing Terrestrial Ecosystem Mapping for the project, our role included:
- Migrating and breeding bird surveys, and bat surveys.
- Large mammals assessments
- Fisheries assessments
- Amphibian assessments
- Rare Plants surveys
- Invertebrate surveys
EDI supported the AIR preparation and efforts to assess impacts and mitigative measures. In addition, we acted as client liaison and provided assistance at Technical Working Group meetings and open houses.
