WORLD ENERGY GH2 UPDATES

Site access on the Port au Port Peninsula has been granted to World Energy GH2 to undertake environmental studies and wind measurement data collection. Environmental studies and wind measurement data collection are being undertaken to determine whether this project will proceed.

Scientists and contractors are onsite in the Port au Port area over the next 4-5 weeks conducting environmental studies and preparing sites for five wind measurement towers. Botany, wildlife and water experts are onsite and will continue to study the environment in the project areas.

 To prepare sites for the wind measurement towers, some access road/trail/right-of-way maintenance and upgrading work is taking place. Access roads/trails/right-of-ways and sites are not closed to residents. Residents are able to travel through areas as needed.

Wind measurement towers will be installed on Crown Lands in the following areas: Between Abrahams Cove and Campbells Creek; between Lower Cove and Ship Cove; West Bay; Mainland; and Garden Hill.

WORLD ENERGY GH2 UPDATES

I hope your week is going well! We have a few project updates for you.

Environmental and wind measurement studies
Community members may see contractors in the Port au Port area over the coming weeks and months, conducting the environmental studies and wind measurement preparation.

As part of the environmental assessment process, we have contractors who have begun the environmental studies in the Port au Port area and will soon start in the Three Rivers / Flat Bay / Codroy Valley area as well.

As part of the crown lands process, we are starting the preliminary investigative work, including wind measurement. You will see five wind measurement towers set up in the Port au Port area over the next few weeks.

Household mailout
We’ve sent an information brochure to households on the Port au Port Peninsula (and as far east as Kippens). Please find attached the first in a series of mailouts. The piece will be folded in half. Residents can expect to see this piece in their mailboxes this week.

Public opinion research (MQO Research)
I know there is a lot of talk about public opinion polls in your communities, so I wanted to share with you that MQO Research conducted a study across the province in September regarding green energy development, and they found there is very high support for green energy development and for onshore wind development, in particular.

For your reference, I’ve attached a one-page summary of the findings, and you can download the full findings and questions here: https://we.tl/t-W4ADqbhjXI

Community Vibrancy Fund
Please feel free to share the details of the CVF with your community members. If you have any questions, please reach out anytime.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks so much!
