To all of you who made a birthday contribution.
Wind Watch still needs help, though. If you did not already, please give now. Every dollar (and euro, yuan, pound, krone, zloty, ruble, rupee, shekel, etc.) helps to keep us on line and independent.
The Irish Independent quotes sources close to Airtricity as saying that the renewable energy company is planning to invest about €1.9 billion in wind projects across Canada over the next four years.
The paper says the investment will be channelled through Gale Force Energy (GFE), a Canadian energy group acquired by Airtricity yesterday for a sum believed to be around $10m.
Airtricity, which is already building wind farms in New York and Texas, acquired the company from Romspen Investment Corporation, an Ontario-based mortgage provider. GFE has about 30 wind projects with the potential to produce 4,000 mw of electricity under various stages of development.
