Bullfrog and Sky Generation announce development of wind farm
TORONTO, Aug. 13 /CNW/ - Bullfrog Power, a leading Canadian provider of
100 per cent green electricity, in partnership with Sky Generation, developer
of the Ferndale wind farm, today announced the development of a new Ontario
wind farm that will service the growing demand for clean, renewable power.
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 government's Environmental
Choice(M) Program EcoLogo(M) 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 Power's green
"We're 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, we're 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. "We're pleased to be working
together with Bullfrog to bring new wind power online in Ontario."
