Ramea’s wind farm featured nationally

One of the world’s few wind-hydrogen-diesel energy projects – located on the isolated island of Ramea off of Newfoundland’s south coast – is being featured in today’s Globe and Mail. “At a small boggy island off the southwest coast of Newfoundland, winds whip against the hills and chop into the sea. They gust pretty much all year, but are strongest in the winter. They’ve shaped the character and history of this fishing village: The Four Winds, one of Ramea Island’s oldest and stateliest homes, is named after this force of nature.” Read the story by clicking the link below. “The costs of trucking diesel fuel in are quite exorbitant,” noted Terry Kimmel, vice-president of the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association. “So why not … use renewables and make your own energy? What you save is a lot of carbon dioxide that’s going into the atmosphere.”
