Windstream Energy is still looking to complete its proposed $5.2 billion offshore wind farm project near Kingston, despite a provincial moratorium that continues to stall its construction.

According to a report in the Toronto Star, the provincial government placed the moratorium on building offshore wind farms in order to research the environmental impacts of such projects.

Windstream had filed a $568 million complaint under NAFTA and was recently awarded $25 million in damages.

In September, the Ontario government suspended the second round of its Large Renewable Procurement process, citing the fact that the province does not need more energy generation to meet current demand.
