Wind Farming on Vancouver Island

Coastal regions do tend to experience a fair share of wind, but creating wind farms is not common on the BC Coast. One of the first is operating on the northern tip of Vancouver Island.

The Cape Scott wind farm, originally known as the Knob Hill wind farm, was built in 2011 and became operational in 2013. It sells power to BC Hydro. To read more about this 864+ acres wind farm, check it out here.

Ed has had a number of opportunities to fly over the turbines while up island taking property photos.

There are other companies looking at sites on northern Vancouver Island, you can see more information at Port Hardy's website here.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Live It!
