  • Beothuck Energy Sees More Funding for Wind Power in Province

    A company which is focusing on developing wind farms as an alternative to fossil fuels and hydro is ready to announce a major infusion of cash.

    Beothuck Energy of Newfoundland is using the west coast of the island and Nova Scotia to develop wind farms.

    Premier Dwight Ball emerged from the Atlantic Governors/Eastern Canadian Premiers Conference in Boston declaring that the US wants electricity from offshore wind as opposed to hydro power from Labrador.

    Beothuck Energy CEO Kirby Mercer says they have improved the reliability of wind power significantly by complementing it with hydroelectricity.
