Ontario, Canada [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Bullfrog Power, a leading Canadian provider of 100 percent green electricity, in partnership with Sky Generation, developer of the Ferndale wind farm, this week announced the development of a new Ontario wind farm that will service the growing demand for clean, renewable power in the province.
The site, located in Ravenswood, on the shores of Lake Huron, near Grand Bend, Ontario, will be home to six Vestas V82 1.65 MW wind turbines, which will produce more than 26 million kilowatt hours of power annually.
Construction of the wind farm will begin in August and is scheduled for completion in late fall 2007. To meet the accelerating demand from Ontario homes and businesses for 100 percent renewable electricity, Bullfrog will source a portion of the wind power from the new site.
Bullfrog sources power for its Ontario customers exclusively from wind and low-impact hydro generators that meet or exceed the federal government’s Environmental Choice Program EcoLogo standard for renewable electricity. Sky Generation has supplied Bullfrog Power with EcoLogo-certified wind power from its existing Ferndale wind farm since the launch of Bullfrog Power in 2005.
Two new turbines were also erected at that site in 2006 to accommodate the growing demand for Bullfrog Power’s green electricity service.
“We’re thrilled to be working on another new renewable power project with Sky Generation. The overwhelming response from customers has enabled us to expand our partnerships with suppliers like Sky Generation to bring new clean power to the Ontario system,” said Tom Heintzman, President of Bullfrog Power.
