Nova Scotia Power and Renewable Energy Services Limited (RESL) have announced a further addition to wind power generation in Nova Scotia.

RESL already operates four wind turbines in the province, including the site at Goodwood HRM. Nova Scotia Power has agreed to buy power from an additional three turbines that RESL will install this fall.

"We are very pleased that with this agreement, our current energy from wind will be increased by another 2 MW of capacity. That's good news for our customers, the environment and our province," says Ralph Tedesco, president and chief executive officer of Nova Scotia Power.

It is expected that the turbines will be online by year's end.
