Are other municipal utilities involved in projects such as this?

Other municipal utilities right here in Atlantic Canada are involved in renewable energy projects.

For example, Summerside, PEI constructed a 12MW wind farm that has been successfully in operation since 2009.

In Nova Scotia, the Alternative Resource Energy Authority, which is a municipal consortium that includes the Towns of Antigonish, Berwick and Mahone Bay is providing wind energy to four municipal electric utilities.

The City of Edmundston owns three hydroelectric facilities. All of these renewable energy projects have provided both environmental and economic benefits to the communities they serve.
