Every megawatt (MW) of wind reduces our greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 2,500 tonnes per year–enough clean energy for 350-400 Nova Scotian homes (NS Renewables).
Wind Turbines are NOT even close to being the biggest threat to the birds in Canada. Learn more in this article review.
18.3% of Nova Scotia’s electricity was generated from renewable sources including wind, hydro, tidal and biomass (NS Power, 2012).
A 150 MW wind farm uses 480 million litres less water each year than a natural gas facility of the same size. That’s equivalent to the volume of 160 Olympic sized swimming pools (Windfacts).
Every 1,000 MW of new wind energy drives $2.5 billion in investments, creates 10,500 person-years of employment, and provides enough clean power for over 300,000 Canadian homes (Windfacts).
