Wind Developer Chooses GE Turbines

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Canadian wind power developer Schneider Power has selected GE to supply turbines for the Providence Bay Wind Farm on Manitoulin Island. Construction on the farm will begin in spring of 2005, and the first turbine should be commissioned by late September of the same year. Providence Bay is being built independent of the Government of Ontario’s 300 MW request for proposal, and is the first large-scale wind power project to be built in five years, according to Schneider Power. Electricity generated at the wind farm will be sold under long-term power purchase agreements to provincial utilities.
