Prince Edward Island has unveiled a new online wind atlas designed to provide wind power developers with detailed information on the province's wind resources at a resolution of 200 metres, which means users can zero in on the wind resource in any 200-by-200 metre area in the province. "We knew from experience at the North Cape Wind Farm and wind monitoring at the eastern tip of the province that these areas have among the highest wind speeds in North America," says PEI energy minister Jamie Ballem. "The wind atlas confirms there are many other areas of the province where the wind resource is almost as strong."
