Nova Scotia’s Ellershouse Wind Farm has completed the second phase of its development. Owned by Alternative Resource Energy Authority (AREA) with financial support from Bullfrog Power, the project’s seven ENERCON E-92 wind turbines have a total capacity of 16.1 MW and generates enough electricity to power 4,900 homes in the province. 

 

"Bullfrog Power launched in the Maritimes in 2009 to mobilize and create further demand for renewable energy in the region. The launch of the second phase of the Ellershouse Wind Farm is proof of the impact that our customers, like East Coast Credit Union, are having in growing the amount of renewable energy generated in Nova Scotia," said Ron Seftel, CEO at Bullfrog Power.

AREA is a partnership between the Towns of Antigonish, Berwick and Mahone Bay in Nova Scotia. It was created to reduce energy costs, expand green mandates and develop new revenue streams for the municipalities. Minas Energy was the developer for Ellershouse. 

"The financial support of Bullfrog Power was important in ensuring the ongoing success of this project. By launching the second phase of the Ellershouse Wind Farm we are demonstrating real progress in developing new, cleaner forms of power for Nova Scotians," said David Devenne, Mayor of Mahone Bay and vice-chair at AREA.

The project is the first wind development in Nova Scotia to be funded and built independently of the local power authority or any provincial government incentive program.
