This 200 MW wind farm will be located on the highest peaks of Mount MacDonald and Smith Island, near Port Edward, British Columbia. It is sited on the traditional territory of the Coast Tsimshian First Nations.

A turbine supplier has not yet been selected, but Rupert Peace has suggested that each generator will be between 1.5 and 2.5 MW, and they will number up to 70. (In last year’s list, the project was estimated at twice its current size, numbering between 100 and 150 turbines at a cost of $1 billion.) The project is currently undergoing a provincial EA.
