Ontario’s decision to procure more renewable energy good news for Canada’s wind energy industry

The Ontario government has directed the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) to procure a further 2000 MW of new renewable energy, including wind energy, in the province. The directive calls on the OPA to issue a request for proposals for an initial 500 MW of new renewable energy before the end of the year. Ontario’s current installed wind energy capacity sits at just over 415 MW, with an additional 1200 MW under contract.
