company currently holds long term lease agree-
ments and contractual interest in these areas –
comprising over 35,000 acres-- and are permitted
to build wind power generation facilities on these
lands. Birsay and Matador Pasture will each be ap-
proximately 175 MW facilities.
Sky Harvests interests in the Saskatchewan wind
sites are the product of over eight years of invest-

ronmental studies conducted

company in 2005. Sky Harvest
owns two subsidiary companies
in Saskatchewan related to the
wind sites: KeewatinWindpower Inc. and Sky Har-
vest Saskatchewan Corp.

Arctic descending and you also have warm air from
