Nova Scotia Power has received the green light from the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board for its $93 million share of a controversial wind farm in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, reports The Chronicle Herald.
The $200 million wind farm, which will be the province’s largest, is slated to be operational by the end of 2014. The wind farm would have 34 turbines and be built on a 3,044-hectare property between Vaughan and New Russell. Nova Scotia Power, which has a 49 per cent stake in the project, would own 17 of the turbines.
The 102-MW project’s lead developers are Oxford Frozen Foods and Minas Basin Pulp and Power Co. Ltd.
