Emera adds to wind holdings - Firm now owns Digby Neck wind farm Halifax Chronicle Herald, 3 February 2010
Nova Scotia Power Inc.'s parent company has gobbled up the remaining interests in a 20-turbine wind farm in Digby Neck. Emera Inc. announced Tuesday (2 Feb 2010) that it has purchased 100 per cent of the shares Scotian WindFields Inc. had in the project.  Emera purchased the other half of the project in November 2009 from SkyPower Corp., which entered into creditor protection when owner Lehman Brothers Holding Inc. went bankrupt.  "As we moved through that process, we started into meetings and discussions with Scotian.  We ended up purchasing their interest as well," said Emera spokeswoman Sasha Irving... Emera finalized the purchase of Scotian Windfields on February 1st. The deal includes a development agreement that will see Scotian Windfields continue to work on the project in an unspecified capacity.  Development costs on the Digby wind project were about $19.1 million when SkyPower filed for creditor protection in August 2009.  The company also paid US$16.2 million towards the cost of purchasing 20 wind turbines from General Electric Co.  The total cost of purchasing the turbines is about US$41.1 million, according to court documents.  Dan Roscoe, chief operating officer of Scotian Windfields, said the project can now move toward completion.  "We think this is a very positive move for our investors for what we had invested in to this project," he said Tuesday (2 Feb 2010)... The Digby wind project includes a 20-year power purchase agreement with Nova Scotia Power.  The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2010...

Glooscap Windfield ad, 22 July 2008
Advertisement: The Glooscap Wind Field Inc.
The Kentville Advertiser, 22 July 2008

ICS comment:—
This advertisement (above) includes significant information
about the financial arrangements of this incorporated company
– thus one could reasonably expect that the management would
see that care was taken to get the details right.

However, this ad displays a remarkable level of sloppiness
about the legal name of the company!

The company name is shown four times in this ad.  It is shown
three times as "Glooscap WindField..." (WindField as one word)
and once as "Glooscap Wind Field..." (Wind Field as two words).

The legal name as reported by the Registry of Joint Stock Companies
is: "The Glooscap Wind Field Inc." (Wind Field as two words).
The fully correct legal name appears nowhere in this ad.
