The 12 MW project, made up of four Vestas 3 MW turbines, is to be located on the site of a former landfill and has the potential to meet more than 25% of the energy needs of the community when the winds are favourable. The cost of the full project is C$30 million, with government funding being directed to the second phase, which consists of two turbines and an estimated price tag of C$13.5 million. Although the project is split into two phases, construction of both will proceed at the same time. The project is due for completion in November.
