Canada Wind Energy

Map of Canada showing wind turbine locations

The map above comes from Natural Resources Canada. What I think is very striking is the almost complete absence of wind turbines in BC. Given the weather that we experience the idea that we could not benefit from wind energy but have to rely on daft ideas like the large scale disaster at Site C and the larcenous deals signed with private sector run of the river pirates.

There is also a wind turbine data base which can be downloaded as a docx file

  1. Hello Stephen

    You might not be aware of this British Columbia database.

    One use I have for it is the kml source to find survey Monuments on the North Shore. Walking is my hobby, long distance

    As to your topic today on Wind Turbine, the province as a few.
