The $25 million (€18.8 million) transaction was completed alongside the government of Nova Scotia.
‘Brooklyn Energy and its employees are an important addition to our energy generation portfolio because they produce electricity in accordance with our strategy to generate clean, renewable energy for our customers,’ says Emera CEO Chris Huskilson. ‘The plant will continue to generate clean energy for Nova Scotians and provide a long-term market for local biomass suppliers.’
Brooklyn Energy is a 30MW facility that produces 173,000MWh a year and has power purchase agreement with Nova Scotia Power.
It is believed Brooklyn Energy’s 22 employees will continue to operate the facility.
