Bullfrog Power, Canada's leading green energy provider, is pleased to announce an agreement with Alternative Resource Energy Authority (AREA), a partnership between the Towns of Berwick and Mahone Bay, to source clean, pollution-free electricity from a proposed wind farm in Nova Scotia developed by Minas Energy.

Pending approvals from Nova Scotia Environment and the Municipality of the District of West Hants, the small wind energy project near Ellershouse will begin construction later this year.

"Since Bullfrog Power launched in the Maritimes back in 2009, we have been actively seeking renewable energy development projects to partner with in Nova Scotia," said Holly Bond, National Sales Director, Bullfrog Power. "Bullfrog is proud to be working with the Municipalities of Berwick and Mahone Bay on this project to help increase the amount of clean power produced by and for Nova Scotians."

"Having Bullfrog Power on board matters because they have a reputation for supporting community-backed initiatives and because the financial support they are providing to the project will go a long way to making it successful," said Mayor Joe Feeney, Mahone Bay.

Located in West Hants, near Ellershouse, Nova Scotia, the seven-turbine wind farm will generate clean, renewable power. The project has been proposed by the Municipal Electric Utilities of Nova Scotia Cooperative, who have hired Minas Energy to develop the project. Power generated by the wind farm will be delivered to the Towns of Berwick and Mahone Bay with the option of other Municipal Electric Utilities to join in the future. Through the agreement with AREA, Bullfrog Power will purchase surplus renewable energy certificates (RECs) generated by the project.

"Minas Energy has a long history of working with local stakeholders to successfully develop new renewable energy throughout Nova Scotia," said John Woods, Vice President of Energy Development, Minas Energy. "Our development team is committed to working closely with the project's host community and is in discussions with the Community Liaison Committee to ensure positive economic benefits for all stakeholders."

About Minas Energy
Minas Energy is a member of Scotia Investments Limited, which traces its roots to R. A. Jodrey, one of Nova Scotia's most successful entrepreneurs, whose first company was incorporated in 1927. Mr. Jodrey decided in 1935 to develop hydroelectric power to gain control of his companies' energy destiny, and Minas continues to operate these 2MW and 3MW facilities on the St Croix River system. Faced with elevated price volatility associated with a number of energy purchases, the portfolio in 2005 again decided the best way to manage energy supply and cost risks was to become an active player in the energy market by self-developing some initiatives, and providing solutions to others in need. Minas understands the demand, supply and community sides of the energy industry, which makes them uniquely able to address the concerns of all stakeholders and ultimately deliver results to clients.
