CanWEA Urges Gov. Wind Power Expansion

January 14, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) has submitted a federal budget proposal urging Finance Minister Ralph Goodale to increase its Wind Power Production Incentive (WPPI) target to 4000 MW, extend the deadline to 2010, remove all project, corporate and provincial caps, and allow projects that qualify under the Canadian Renewable and Conservation Expense (CRCE) to also be eligible for WPPI. Although WPPI has stimulated policy proposals at the provincial level that would, if implemented, lead to at least 3500 MW of installed wind capacity, without these improvements there is a, “…real chance that many of these initiatives will be scaled back (to the levels supported by WPPI) or even abandoned over the next 18 months.”
