Bay Wind is also analysing emerging business opportunities related to carbon emissions reduction, tidal, solar, hydrogen, renewable co-generation and alternative renewable fuel sources such as compressed wood briquettes.
Bay Wind after discussions at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in August 2010 has decided to review the way it invests. This decision has been in consultation with the shareholders and with the announcement by the Nova Scotia Governments on New Regulations Encourage Community - Based Renewal Projects (COMFit) (See Press release (click here)). The reviews will be to consider invest in Projects instead of currently in Renewable Energy Companies. This does not mean that it will not carry on with its previous strategy.
To move ahead, Bay Wind is actively communicating with developers to meet the criteria announced and within Bill No 64 (An Act to Amend Chapter 25 of the Acts of 2004, the Electricity Act) to engage in Community Projects within the wind solar and other renewable sources. The monies raised in the last offering, and the previous offering, may be used for specific project(s) to be determined in the forthcoming months.
Bay Wind's previous investment focus was in the area of wind power exploration and development. The aim of the company was to invest in stock of renewable energy sector on behalf of community-based shareholders. In December 2013, Bay Wind made a loan to Scotian Wind Fields Inc and Scotian Wind, interest is paid annually with a option at the end of 5 years to convert the loan into stock.
The aim of Bay Wind is to invest monies raised, in either; Green Energy Projects and/or companies conducting business in the renewable energy sector.
