The 96 megawatt (MW) Kent Hills wind farm is located 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) from Moncton, Albert county. The wind farm will provide around 290,000 MW hours of electricity annually from its 32 3.0 MW Vestas-Canada turbines. This power will be sold to New Brunswick Power. The farm is owned and operated by TransAlta.

By investing in New Brunswick’s first commercial wind farm, our Government is delivering power to Canadians at a competitive price while promoting clean and renewable energy, said Fundy Royal MP Rob Moore.

Not only will this wind farm help protect our environment, but this green-energy technology will help stimulate the economy and create jobs for Canadians.
