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 clean, emission-free 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 per cent green electricity, Bullfrog will source a portion of the clean, emission-free wind power from the new site.
A leading Canadian provider of 100 per cent green electricity, Bullfrog sources power for its Ontario customers exclusively from wind and low-impact hydro generators that meet or exceed the federal governments Environmental Choice Program EcoLogo standard for renewable electricity. Bullfrog Power provides businesses, non-profits, and consumers with a convenient way to support renewable power.
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 Powers green electricity service.
Were 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, Bullfrog Power. Together, were helping to increase the amount of green power in our energy mix, which is good news for the environment and for our communities.
By educating homeowners and businesses on the benefits of switching to green power, Bullfrog is helping to create the market conditions generators depend upon to make the advancement of renewables a reality in Canada, said Glen Estill, principal of Sky Generation. Were pleased to be working together with Bullfrog to bring new wind power online in Ontario.
