The Colchester-Cumberland Wind Field Inc. (CCWF) is a Nova Scotia corporation operating in Colchester and Cumberland Counties.
CCWF is helping to realize the shift in our province toward 40% renewable electricity generation by 2020. “Wind energy offers many advantages – it is emission-free, renewable, domestic, and relatively affordable.” CCWF shareholders are participating in the vision of a cleaner energy future through their investments in CCWF.
CCWF is owned by Nova Scotians, with the majority of shareholders living in our named counties. The company brings economic benefits and environmental pride to its local area and the province as a whole.
CCWF was the first registered CEDIF in Nova Scotia to generate electricity for Nova Scotia Power Inc. CEDIFs are Nova Scotian Community Economic Development Investment Funds, which provide government benefits to individual investors.
Our Green Economy Future
Sustainable energy systems and jobs associated with them will have to play significant roles in our future. Many NS communities and companies are playing roles in shaping this future and providing benefit to residents. The Nova Scotia Renewable Electricity Plan realizes this: “Transforming our current electricity mix to one that is more local and green is important to our future energy security.”
Nova Scotians are being offered the opportunity to participate in a strong green energy economy powered by clean, renewable resources (such as wind energy) and increasingly based on modern infrastructure and smart energy planning. Future generations deserve to grow up in a world powered by cleaner energy.
