Wind turbine powers Lisgar GO Station



Yesterday, GO Transit launched the first wind turbine for a transit agency in the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton at Lisgar GO Station in Mississauga — just in time for Earth Day.

The 31.1-metre high wind turbine can generate 50 kilowatts of power and could produce up to 80 per cent of the station’s power needs. GO chose Lisgar for the turbine because of the wind patterns and speeds in the area.
