Pattern Receives EAC For British Columbia Project


Reaching a key milestone in the development process, Pattern Energy Group LP announced it has received an Environmental Assessment Certificate for its Meikle Wind project, a 185 MW wind power project located in British Columbia.
“This is Pattern Development’s first project in British Columbia, expanding the Company’s presence to a third province in Canada,” said Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Development. “We have now received the major environmental approval for this project, which was the last big milestone before arranging construction financing.”
The Meikle Wind project, which has a 25-year power purchase agreement with BC Hydro, is expected to commence commercial operation in late 2016.
Meikle Wind is one of the seven projects on which Pattern Energy holds the right of first offer rights to purchase.
