Fuel source: Wind
Generating capacity: 20 MW
- Gaia Power, Inc. owns and runs the facility while selling the power back to us.
- We signed an agreement with Gaia Power, Inc on Feb. 1, 2016. They began building the facility in June 2018.
- The project consists of 10 Enercon turbines. They supply up to 20 MW of power. That's enough to power 8,000 homes.
Wind turbines catch the kinetic energy from the wind by turning its large blades. From there, it's turned into power.
The clean power created is then sent to power lines throughout the province. They supply the power to homes and businesses.
Turbines usually work when wind speeds are between 15 and 90 kilometres per hour. They stop working when temperatures fall below -30°C.
