HALIFAX –  Nova Scotia announced on Tuesday its intent to make offshore wind power a key driver of its future energy supply, setting a target of five gigawatts generated from offshore turbines by 2030.

Premier Tim Houston told reporters the ambitious plan to introduce offshore wind power would triple the province’s current total energy output of 2.5 gigawatts.

“The wind is there,” Houston said. “It’s up to us to have the leadership and the courage to harness it.”
