Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Northland Power announced today that they will be featured in an upcoming episode of Shades of Green.
Northland Power has experience and expertise across a number of technologies, including natural-gas-fired, biomass, hydro, wind and solar power. Northland's knowledge of these technologies enables them to pursue opportunities across a broad spectrum of clean and renewable projects.
In this segment, Shades of Green will explore Northland’s plans to convert a long unused iron mine in Ontario into a 400 megawatt pumped storage hydro power facility. As jurisdictions around the world transition to renewable energy sources at previously unforeseen rates, energy storage has been identified as a fundamental counterpart to intermittent energy sources, such as wind and solar.
In addition, audiences will learn about Northland's natural gas turbine technology, which is used to produce large amounts of electricity in an efficient, reliable, and environmentally-responsible manner.
“Northland Power was founded over 25 years ago on the belief that clean and green energy is vital to the future of our planet. It’s all we produce”, said John Brace, President and CEO of Northland Power. “We understand how different technologies work together to form an effective and sustainable electricity system, and we are excited to share our perspective with the Shades of Green audience.”
“Northland power is working today to make a difference for tomorrow," said Robert Sikich, producer for the series. “I'm looking forward to educating audiences on all the different ways this company is creating a more efficient and sustainable future.”
