Bullfrog Power, a Canadian provider of green energy, has announced an agreement with Alternative Resource Energy Authority (AREA), a partnership between the Towns of Berwick and Mahone Bay, to source electricity from a proposed wind farm in Nova Scotia.

AREA has proposed the seven-turbine wind farm, located near Ellershouse, and hired Minas Energy to develop the project. Power generated by the wind farm will be delivered to the Towns of Berwick and Mahone Bay with the option of other municipal electric utilities to join in the future. Through the agreement with AREA, Bullfrog Power will purchase surplus renewable energy certificates generated by the project.

"Since Bullfrog Power launched in the Maritimes back in 2009, we have been actively seeking renewable energy development projects to partner with in Nova Scotia," says Holly Bond, national sales director at Bullfrog Power. "Bullfrog is proud to be working with the municipalities of Berwick and Mahone Bay on this project to help increase the amount of clean power produced by and for Nova Scotians."

Pending regulatory approvals, the project is expected to begin construction later this year.
