Nuttby wind farm project approved  

TRURO – Premier Rodney MacDonald is coming to town today to announce approval of a 45 megawatt wind farm on Nuttby Mountain.

The project will see approximately 20, 120 metre-tall windmills constructed near the top of the highest point on mainland Nova Scotia.

MacDonald will be joined by officials from Nova Scotia Power Inc. for the formal announcement at noon today in the Marigold Cultural Centre.

While officials were keeping mum about precise details surrounding the announcement, the Truro Daily News has learned the premier will confirm approval of a proposal put forth last fall by Cobequid Area Wind Farms Inc.

Nova Scotia Power has called for proposals for alternative energy sources to meet a provincial objective to have nearly 20 per cent of the province’s electricity come from green sources such as wind by 2013.

Last year, Cobequid Area Wind Farm publicly introduced a proposal to construct up to 22, 120-metre tall turbines on Nuttby Mountain.

The project is expected to cost up to $100 million and with an energy output of 45 megawatts, the turbines will provide electricity to some 14,000 homes per year.
