Sundance Wind Project for Tumbler Ridge


Sundance Wind Project Limited Partnership, a subsidiary of EDF EN Canada Inc., is developing the 250 MW Sundance Wind Project (Project) on public land between Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd, British Columbia. The Project is located approximately 20 km north of Tumbler Ridge, east of Hwy 29, as indicated in the project location map.

EDF EN Canada is one of Canada’s largest wind energy developers, with over 1,300 MW of solar and wind projects installed or under development in Canada. EDF EN, our parent company, has a presence in over 16 counties internationally.  Visit the EDF EN Canada web site for more information.

The project is currently undergoing a BC Environmental Assessment (“EA”).  Throughout this process, the Sundance Wind Project will evaluate potential adverse impacts on the local environment, communities and Treaty rights. Where the potential for adverse impacts exist, Sundance Wind Project will work with local stakeholders and Frist Nations to address those concerns and ensure we minimize the disruption.

Additionally, documentation shared with the BC Environmental Assessment Office is posted publically for review

Sundance Wind Project understands that every project is unique; therefore, our philosophy is to engage local governments, stakeholders and First Nation communities as early in the permitting and approvals process as possible and continually reaching out throughout development to ensure this feedback helps guide the decision making process during Project development.

Consultation on the Sundance Wind Project has been on-going since 2012. In the months to come, we will continue to engage stakeholders and First Nation communities by presenting information, listening to questions and responding with information on the Project website, hosting local open houses and being available for individual discussions.

An Open House about the project will be held June 4 from 4-8pm at the Trend Mountain Conference Centre in Tumbler Ridge
