Nova Scotia extreme weather leaves thousands without energy, but there are options...
On July 22, Nova Scotia faced a challenge many did not see coming. Cities and towns across Nova Scotia got over 100mm of rain withing an hour with some places receiving over 200mm. This flash flood proved to be extremely destructive.
Nova Scotia is located in the northern limit of the Atlantic hurricane system; this makes it a prime target for extreme weather. Due to the increases in global warming, storms have been hitting Nova Scotia more frequently. In January 2023, Nova Scotia had an unnamed subtropical storm that ripped apart houses and powerlines leaving thousands without electricity. The wind speeds reached over 100km/h going up to almost 140km/h. Wind speeds that high are evidently detrimental to a lot of structures.
At Borrum Energy Solutions we pride ourselves on the fact that our towers and turbines are designed to meet if not exceed the CSA S37 standards for antennas and towers. The Anorra Turbines can withstand winds of up to 189km/h in freezing temperatures as low as 50 degrees Celsius, providing a safe and reliable operation for years.
The perks of reaching this standard can be quite important for provinces like Nova Scotia. During tropical storms where roofs are flying off and electrical lines are being damaged, cutting off power to thousands of homes, our Anorra Wind Turbine is taking advantage of the high winds to power up your electrical appliances when they are needed most. Using clean energy like this will not only be helpful especially during times like these but it will also reduce your impact on global warming.
