More turbines for wind farm

The Kent Hills wind farm in Albert County will be expanded, according to CBC.

TransAlta will build five new wind turbines to add to the 50 already on the site. They will add another 17 megawatts of generating capacity to the company’s wind farm. The new turbines are to make up for a lower-than-expected amount of energy produced by the wind farm so far.

NB Power’s Marc Belliveau said the lower than expected energy production can be attributed to a nationwide overestimating of wind capacity.
