Court Strikes Down Municipal Anti-Wind By-laws

On May 23, 2014, in Suncor Energy Products v. Town of Plympton-Wyoming, 2014 ONSC 2934 (“Suncor”), Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice confirmed that the provisions of any municipal by-law that purport to prohibit the construction and operation of wind turbines at provincially approved locations will be of no force and effect, and cannot interfere with the issuance of building permits for such turbines.

This decision should provide renewable energy developers with added certainty that provincially approved renewable energy projects may be constructed despite municipal by-laws to the contrary.
