  • OSEA: Guidebooks and Tools
    Handbook is designed to give developers of wholesale community wind projects practical knowledge of what to expect when developing commercial scale community wind energy projects in the range of 2 to 50 Megawatts MW These wind projects are designed for bulk power generation for sale to a utility company or large electricity user and can supply enough energy to serve several hundred to thousands of homes Typically planning and developing a wholesale community wind project takes several years working with a dedicated team of professionals that have expertise in business and finance easements power purchase agreements engineering construction and project management and experience in the utility sector as well as other aspects of the wind industry The Val Éo Business Model 1 431 714 bytes How to create and optimize a community wind co operative to add value to local wind energy resources on private land Le modèle de gestion Val Éo 1 334 741 bytes La création et l optimisation d une coopérative de mise en valeur du potentiel éolien sur des terres privées Permitting Approvals Processes for Community Power Projects 426 939 bytes This guidebook first edition offers an overview of the policy environment for wind and biogas projects in Ontario The content of this guidebook will also be useful to municipal planners considering wind project policy project proponents and members of the public participating in planning processes This guidebook is not comprehensive in scope due to the multitude of policy nuances across the province and will require regular updating to keep in step with policy changes The Ontario Sustainable Energy Association makes no guarantee as to the legal accuracy of content To purchase the full hardcopy or PDF document please visit OSEA s Publications page OSEA Community Power Financing Guidebook 389 824 bytes A guide to early
