Millbrook First Nation partners on $2m wind project

March 7, 2012 – 7:20pm BY THE CHRONICLE HERALD

The Canadian arm of a German wind energy developer has partnered with the Millbrook First Nation for a project approved under the province’s community feed-in tariff program.
Juwi Wind Canada said it will be working with the band over the next 12 to 18 months to develop the $2-million project.
“Juwi is pleased to be partnering on a project that expands upon our company’s community development history and success,” chief executive officer Michael Rucker said in a news release Wednesday.
The band plans to install three turbines, creating a six-megawatt wind project.
Local wind developer Community Wind Farms Inc. is also involved in the partnership, the release said.
Juwi will provide development capital and expertise, while Community Wind Farms will perform the day-to-day development work.
The community feed-in tariff program gives eligible groups an established price for projects that generate electricity from renewable sources.
