- 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)
Northumberland's 3 x 50kW Ghrepower renewable wind energy installation atop Fitzpatrick Mtn, Pictou County. The crane and excavator are miniature beside the 42metre tall towers.
