The Future is ‘Wind’
Renewable wind energy is coming to Lakeshore. Council has approved four (4) wind farm projects throughout the municipality. It is anticipated that these wind turbines will each generate 600 volts of power which is stepped up to 27.6 kV by transformers. Each project has a number of turbines for a total of over 125 turbines, bringing Lakeshore to the forefront of renewable energy.
