The following was distributed to APPEC members stating that an APPEC appeal has been filed of the wpd White Pines Wind project.
Dear APPEC Members:
The approval of the 27-turbine White Pines Wind Project has been widely condemned. The APPEC Board, on behalf of its members, has responded to the approval by filing a Notice of Appeal with the Environmental Review Tribunal (ERT).
APPEC’s appeal was filed on Friday, July 31st with the ERT and served on the Ministry of the Environment and wpd White Pines Inc. The appeal contests the approval on grounds that this project, if allowed to proceed, will cause serious harm to human health and the natural environment of the Prince Edward County south shore.
APPEC is well-prepared to launch this appeal. We have been actively critiquing the project since 2010 when it was issued a FIT contract. We are motivated and we are ready with a legal team and expert witnesses.
We are organized to succeed on both appeals. In order to ensure success the APPEC Board will be seeking your financial support and time commitment in the weeks to come.
