Bullfrog Power, a Canadian provider of green electricity, has joined with Lion's Head, Ontario-based Sky Generation to build a wind energy facility in Ravenswood, Ontario. The project will feature six Vestas V82 1.65 MW turbines, which will produce more than 26 million kWh of electricity annually, Bullfrog Power says.

Construction of the wind farm, which was developed in response to accelerating demand for clean energy in Ontario, will begin in August and is scheduled for completion in late fall. Bullfrog Power adds that Sky Generation has supplied Bullfrog Power with EcoLogo-certified wind power from its existing Ferndale wind farm since the launch of Bullfrog Power in 2005.

"By educating homeowners and businesses on the benefits of switching to green power, Bullfrog is helping to create the market conditions generators depend upon to make the advancement of renewables a reality in Canada," says Glen Estill, principal of Sky Generation.
