EDPR Wind Farm
Ontario | Nation Rise

On May 14, 2020, EDP Renewables Canada Ltd. (EDPR) announced that the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Divisional Court) has reinstated the Renewable Energy Approval (REA) for the Nation Rise Wind Farm. In its reasons, the Court stated that “this is a case where the Minister’s decision is not reasonable and does not deserve deference. The decision does not meet requirements of transparency, justification, and intelligibility, as the Minister has failed to adequately explain his decision.” The Court concluded, “this is a rare case in which the Minister’s decision should be quashed and the decision of the ERT should be reinstated.”
