Antigonish Mayor Laurie Boucher says she can’t understate the importance of the town’s wind farm.  The town shares the wind farm in West Hants with Berwick and Mahone Bay.  The town has a 63 per cent stake in the wind farm.  Boucher says three more wind turbines have been commissioned, bringing the total up to seven.  In a year-end interview, Boucher  says it’s hoping to install three more  turbines to bring the total up to 10.
Boucher is confident the town can reach the provincial standard for generating renewable electricity by 2020.
