Construction begins at first commercial wind farm in NL

ST. LAWRENCE, N.L. (CP) - Construction has started on Newfoundland's first commercial wind farm, which will feature nine turbines and have the potential to power 6,800 homes.

The project in St. Lawrence - located on the Burin Peninsula - is part of a 20-year agreement that Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro signed in January with NeWind, a Canadian subsidiary of Enel North America. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Thursday, and the 27-megawatt project is expected to be in full operation by the end of 2008.
