Starwood Energy Group is sent back to the drawing board after prematurely claiming its proposed energy project is backed by First Nations
Representatives of a Connecticut-based private equity investment firm got their backsides paddled at Monday’s city council meeting for prematurely claiming First Nations support for a proposed 445-hectare hybrid energy facility near Sault Ste. Marie Airport.
“We take consultation with Indigenous partners in Sault Ste. Marie very seriously,” newly elected Ward 3 Coun. Angela Caputo told representatives for the Starwood Energy Group solar farm/battery energy storage proposal.
“Saying that you have someone’s approval to try and sway a council… is really serious. At the next meeting, if you’re able to come, I would really like to see clearly if you have support, or if we’re just going to take that out,” Caputo said.
