In Summerside, an initial inspection found there was little damage to the four turbines. However, the city says they were turned off for safety reasons. “We need to do a better inspection with binoculars and drones on the blades to make sure there is no cracking . . . Complete story »

Inuvik wind project costs almost double, NWT asks Ottawa for help

Construction of a wind turbine outside Inuvik is now expected to cost up to $70 million, nearly twice the initial budget. The NWT has asked the federal government for more money.

The 3.5-megawatt turbine is expected to put a major dent in Inuvik’s diesel consumption and make a . . . Complete story »
