The Halifax News reports that a new wind farm which is to be developed in Cape Breton will eventually supply Nova Scotia Power Inc. with enough electricity to serve about 6,000 homes.
A long term agreement has been signed with Nova Scotia-based Renewable Energy Services Ltd., or RESL.
Eleven new turbines will be added at the existing site which is located at Statia Terminals in Port Hawkesbury, N.S., where one turbine is already in operation.
The turbines will reach a height of 80 meters and be able to 22 megawatts of electrical capacity.
Nova Scotia Power reports that while this is the first agreement other agreements with renewable energy companies, to supply electricity to 60,000 homes by 2010, will eventually be announced.
RESL is presently operating five turbines across the Nova Scotia at Brookfield, Goodwood, Marshville, Digby and Port Hawkesbury.
