On Sept. 8, 2012 a large group of family, friends, neighbours, and Northumberland Wind Field (NWF) Directors and shareholders gathered at beautiful Avondale Wind Park on Doliber Mountain (off the Barney’s River Road) to dedicate NWF's community-owned wind energy project to its immediate Past President and good friend, the late John “Harley” Kellock.
NWF completed the Park’s 2.2km of roads on Sept. 7th. When installed, the 4 small wind turbines to be purchased for the Park will produce electricity that will travel the power lines from the wind turbines to the Barney’s River Road and go directly to Harley’s home and all homes in District 1. NWF wouldn’t be here without Harley’s selfless dedication to the company.
NWF was incorporated in late 2004. Harley Kellock became a member of the company's Board of Directors soon after. During 2007, he served as Vice President, becoming the company's President in late 2007.
Harley served the company with dedication and boundless energy and enthusiasm until his untimely passing on November 14, 2009.
