Brooklyn Named as Location for Wind Turbines in Canadian Energy Storage Project

Brooklyn could soon be home to a new wind turbine project that would store renewable energy for the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.

On Tuesday, Unify Energy Inc. and Watts Wind Energy Inc. submitted an environmental assessment of the area in which Liverpool Wind Energy Storage Project Inc. would be constructed.

Nova Scotia’s Minister of Environment is expected to issue a decision by Oct. 28, 2015 on whether the project can proceed.

The Liverpool wind farm would see two Enercon-92 wind turbines erected about 2.5 miles outside Brooklyn.  Upon completion, the project would produce 4.7 MW of energy.

With approval, construction will begin in March 2016 and the turbines would be online by October 2016.
