"We are delighted that our project partners and supporters were able to join us for the official opening of this Amherst Wind Farm," said Jeff Jenner, President and CEO of Sprott Power Corp. "Sprott Power owes thanks to our partner, suppliers, local and provincial government and authorities, land owners, the community, and our board and staff who made it all possible. This project will provide the province with enough clean electricity to power 10,000 homes annually."
"It takes a huge amount of vision, determination and skill to pull a project like this together, and Sprott Power and its partners have done it without any financial help from government," said Premier Dexter. "This wind farm is a magnificent addition to the horizon that greets visitors when they drive into Nova Scotia. It will also play an important role in helping the province achieve its aggressive renewable energy targets. Congratulations to everyone involved and thank you for choosing to invest in a stronger, more sustainable Nova Scotia."
