GOODWOOD, N.S. (CP) – Nova Scotia Power Inc. has announced the construction of three more wind turbines in the province.
The announcement was made Monday in Goodwood, N.S., west of Halifax, at the site of an existing turbine owned by Renewable Energy Services Ltd. The Nova Scotia-based company, which already operates a number of turbines across the province, will construct and operate the new turbines. It’s not yet known where they will be built, although they are expected to be on-line by the end of the year. Nova Scotia Power, a subsidiary of Emera Inc. (TSX:EMA), has power purchase agreements with a number of companies. Utility spokeswoman Margaret Murphy says the province has been listening to consumers and wants to create environmentally friendly power. Nine turbines have popped up across the province in the past 12 months, with recent additions in Goodwood, Point Tupper, Brookfield and Fitzpatrick Mountain, in Pictou County, N.S. © The Canadian Press 2006
