Watts Section Project Update to the Community

Watts Wind Energy Inc. has now begun the construction of this wind turbine.

The location of the wind turbine can be seen on the map to the right, including the access road from Highway No.7. The photos show a similar turbine installed elsewhere by Eon WindElectric, as well as the crane on this Project site during ongoing construction as of mid-February. The commissioning is expected in Spring of 2011. Information on a community opening event will be placed on our website. Please watch the website and the horizon for updates on the Project!
