DGJ_3873 - Pubnico Harbour Lighthouse & Wind farm

PLEASE, no multi invitations, glitters or self promotion in your comments. My photos are FREE for anyone to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks - NONE OF MY PICTURES ARE HDR.

 

Most of the pictures I am posting are of lighthouses, since a 1000 of them have been declared surplus by the Federal Government many may not be around much longer. Some have already been taken down and are gone forever.

 

A 17 turbine wind farm on the southern portion of Pubnico Point, West Pubnico, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia generates approximately 100,000,000 kW/hr of electricity annually, enough to power 10,000-13,000 average Canadian homes per year. The power will be sold to Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI).
