Announcing new turbine

June 15th, 2010 Lake Echo, NS - Scotian WindFields Inc is pleased to announce the installation of its latest wind turbines in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia. Mountainview Estates, a manufactured home community owned by Killam Properties Inc., will enjoy the benefits of a 50kW Endurance wind turbine and a 6kW Scirocco wind turbine. The 50kw machine provides three phase power to the community's water supply and waste water treatment facilities, while the single phase machine provides electricity to power the community's street lights and Killam's other electrical needs.

"We are excited to announce such an innovative project on Global Wind Day", said Scotian WindFields Chief Operating Officer Daniel Roscoe, "This project is a great example of both businesses taking a lead with respect to our dependence on fossil fuels and how renewable energy systems can help stabilize the cost of services important to us, such as provision of drinking water".

Killam Properties Logo "Killam Properties is committed to managing its exposure to energy costs with investments in green initiatives" noted Philip Fraser, Killam's President and CEO. "The electricity generated through the wind turbines at Mountainview Estates is net metered against Killam's electricity usage at the community, allowing a perfect hedge against rising electricity costs."

This installation marks another renewable energy project for Killam Properties, which has shown leadership in this field for many years. This is their first wind energy project, and follows five solar system installations, and a variety of other energy efficiency programs. Killam is set to begin its newest solar energy system on its Parker Street Apartments, in Dartmouth. When completed, this project will be the largest single solar array in Nova Scotia.

Mountainview Turbine The costs of traditional fossil fuel energy sources such as oil, natural gas, coal and heating oil have at least doubled, and in some cases quadrupled, over the past 10-15 years. This trend will only accelerate as these limited resources become scarcer and demand continues to rise. In addition to having volatile costs, 90% of energy consumed in Nova Scotia is imported, so the money spent on using this energy leaves our Province.

"Businesses and Public Institutions have to ask themselves: how can we keep our public infrastructure, like hospitals, schools, and basic services available, and our local businesses profitable, when oil is $200/barrel, or electricity is 20cents/kWh?" noted Daniel Roscoe.

"It gives us a great feeling of pride to see our hard work and investment turned into wind generators that provide energy directly to families in our community," said Chebucto Windfield Director Shannon Lynch. "Our investment group was founded on the recognition that we must shift focus from fossil fuels to renewable energy. In Nova Scotia our heavy dependence on fossil fuels puts our way of life in jeopardy due to the volatility of price and security of that risky fuel source. Seeing communities acquire access to clean renewable energy produced right in their own backyard, it's what our movement is all about."

Chebucto Windfield Inc is a Community Economic Development Corporation operating in Halifax Regional Municipality. Their mandate is to raise capital through the sale of shares and invest this money in renewable energy companies owned and operated in Nova Scotia.

Scotian and Killam hosted a tour of the new wind turbines to help celebrate Global Wind Day June 15, 2010.

NEWS RELEASE: Scotian WindFields endorses Ecology Action Centre's call for Sustainable Infrastructure

December 16, 2008

Scotian WindFields is endorsing the Ecology Action Centre's call for sustainable infrastructure spending. "The Ecology Action Centre's approach to the economic crisis by encouraging investment that helps transition Nova Scotia to a low carbon economy is bang on with what we've been recommending," Chief Operating Officer, Dan Roscoe said regarding today's release from the Ecology Action Centre.

"It makes good business and economic sense, and it also suits the government's strategy to meet the targets of the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act by addressing both sustainability and prosperity" added Roscoe.

The policy analysts at Scotian WindFields added practical recommendations to the call for sustainable infrastructure funding. These recommendations meet government's twin goals of facilitating long term strategic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and of fueling economic growth in the green-tech and green-collar job sectors.

Recommendation One:

Invest in onsite renewable energy and energy efficiency measures at public buildings, for example:
  • Onsite wind turbines at schools, and large public infrastructure like water supply and treatment facilities

  • Solar hot water panels at hospitals, long care facilities, recreation centers

  • Lighting and insulation improvements at public offices and administrative facilities

Recommendation Two:

Triple the funding for energy auditors in the province, and cover all of the associated costs to the home and business owners. (The current wait time of 4-5 months, with a prohibitive upfront cost is a major barrier to most homeowners.)

Recommendation Three: Provide 10 year interest free loans for all onsite renewable energy generation - all active forms from commercial to residential, including all net metered wind turbines.

By comparison, these initiatives will cost far less than the anticipated $100 Million earmarked for the twining of Highway 104 and building of new Jails. These recommendations will also have a far more immediate and long lasting economic ripple effect, creating many times more jobs and economic development.

Enactment of these recommendations will set Nova Scotia up well, both economically and environmentally. By taking leadership with direct measures and by empowering residents to make local changes, the province will make the kind of infrastructure investment that can have long-term effects and ensure a sustainable future for its citizens.
