New radar technology in the works  

Credit:  By Melanie Irwin on September 24, 2014 | blackburnnews.com ~~

NextEra Energy is working closely with Environment Canada as it prepares to roll out new radar technology.

The company, which is currently erecting 92 turbines in Lambton Shores and Warwick, has entered into an agreement with the weather agency, to shut down their turbines if an issue arrises.

NextEra spokesperson Josie Bird says they want to ensure public safety, not restrict it and operators actually have an “app” to shut everything down if necessary.

The new software is hoped to combat that clutter from wind farms and is expected to be incorporated into Canada’s radar system this fall.

NextEra’s Jericho Wind project is over 50 per cent complete.
