Brookfield Power Completes 189 MW Wind Farm in Canada

The completion of both phases of the 189 megawatts (MW) Prince Wind Energy Project, comprised of 126 wind turbines extending over nearly 20,000 acres, by Brookfield Power, marks the largest wind farm in Canada to date.

The first 99 MW phase was commissioned in September 2006; the second 90 MW phase two was commissioned in November 2006. Both phases were awarded 20-year power supply agreements under the Ontario Government’s request for proposals for new renewable energy supply. Now that it is fully operational 15 full-time staff will manage the wind farm. “The completion of our first wind development represents a major achievement for Brookfield Power — increasing our total capacity to almost 3,800 MW and expanding our renewable power portfolio in Ontario to almost 1,200 MW,” said Harry Goldgut, Chairman and CEO, Brookfield Power. “Ontario is now Canada’s leading wind power generator thanks in part to the opening today of the Prince wind farm,” said Energy Minister Dwight Duncan. “I want to thank Brookfield Power for their investment in Ontario’s green energy future.” Brookfield Power’s portfolio comprises almost 3,800 MW of capacity and includes 138 hydroelectric power generating stations and one pumped storage facility located on 49 river systems, one wind farm, two thermal plants and transmission and distribution assets, principally in the northeastern North America and South America.
