Stage set for environmental review

March 5, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The BC Environmental Assessment Office has accepted the terms of reference submitted by Sea Breeze Power in preparation for a formal review of its proposed Knob Hill Wind Farm. The project, the first in the province to get to this stage of the process, would be located 35 kilometers west of Port Hardy on the northern end of Vancouver Island. Upon completion, the Wind Farm is expected to have a maximum installed capacity of up to 450 MW, sufficient to provide the energy consumed by approximately 150,000 British Columbian homes on an annual basis. The Company expects to be submitting the formal application in respect to the Knob Hill Wind Farm to the Environmental Assessment Office within the next few weeks. Sea Breeze also received an Investigative Use Permit for the Franklin Ridge property on northern Vancouver Island. This brings the total area under application by the company in British Columbia to 67,225 hectares.
