Large Scale Wind Project
The Province of New Brunswick initiated an aggressive wind strategy that would see up to 4500MW of wind energy produced in the province by 2025. This opportunity could more than double the province’s electrical generating capacity and contributes to the further diversification of the region’s energy portfolio.
An investment into renewable energy of such magnitude creates both environmental and economic benefits for the region, particularly the opportunity to export this safe, environmentally-friendly energy surplus to other regions throughout the international northeast.
The project surpasses the province’s goal to have 10 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2016. In fact, the province reached over 30 percent in 2014.
