Municipality Of Guysborough Taking The Lead With Large-scale Wind
The Municipality of the District of Guysborough (MODG) was awarded one of three contracts under Nova Scotia’s most recent RFP for large-scale wind to develop the 13.8 MW Sable Wind Project near the communities of Canso and Hazel Hill. This is the first large-scale wind farm to be developed by a municipality in Nova Scotia. Work is expected to start on the ground in 2013, with construction being completed and turbines in operation during the 2014 calendar year. The Sable Wind Project is expected to produce enough energy to serve approximately 4,600 homes.
