Fitzpatrick Mtn Project

Project Description

  • the project is located in the western section of Pictou County on Fitzpatrick Mountain, near Scotsburn, Nova Scotia
  • the project consists of three Ghrepower domestic 50 kW wind turbine generators
  • the machines will produce 150kW of clean, green renewable energy
  • the electricity NWF's Fitzpatrick Mtn project produces is sold at the ComFIT rate under a Power Purchase Agreement with Nova Scotia Power
  • this project will add 150 kW to the 3100kWs (3.1MW) of wind energy already being produced for Scotsburn and its surrounding rural communities
  • every megawatt (MW) of wind reduces our greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 2,500 tonnes per year, enough clean energy for 350 - 400 Pictou County homes (NS Renewables)
