Finavera Renewables has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Halfway River First Nation for the development of its four wind projects with a generating capacity of 300MW in the Peace Region of British Columbia.

Through the MoU, the Halfway River First Nation has provided its acknowledgment and acceptance for the Tumbler Ridge, Wildmare, Meikle and Bullmoose Wind projects.

The agreement establishes the processes and sharing of benefits that will ensure an ongoing positive relationship with First Nations communities, Finavera said.

Finavera commits to providing clean, renewable energy that brings benefits to First Nations and all British Columbians in a manner that respects Aboriginal and Treaty rights and minimizes environmental impacts, the company said.
