2 South Canoe Wind Project

3 What we knew By 2015 Nova Scotia must be generating 25% of its power from renewable sources One of the main complaints about wind turbines is the noise they create, but—new turbines are quieter than your fridge dB

4 Why is the project unlikely to meet resistance ? If a wind turbine turns in the woods and there is no one there to hear it… Does it make a noise? Partners in the project agree turbines will not be built within meters of a home

5 What surprised us? Neither Oxford Frozen Foods or Minas Basin Pulp and Paper Plan to use any of the power created by the turbines directly

6 So why build South Canoe? Oxford Frozen Foods Demonstrate support of green technology to lure more environmental conscious customers Want to reduce carbon footprint Investment Mina Basin Pulp & Paper Demonstrate continued support of green technology Get carbon credits for helping to reduce carbon footprint Provide land for turbine site and collect land lease fees

7 How will South Canoe help NS? Reduce our By tonnes a year Power homes
