Ontario wind

The 48.6 MW Pointe-Aux-Roches wind project being developed by International Power Canada in Ontario is one of the first to include content-compliant turbines as required under the province’s feed-in-tariff program. The project uses steel processed and fabricated in Ontario in its turbine towers.

Canada currently has 3,549 MW of installed wind energy capacity. Ontario is the provincial leader in installed wind energy capacity with 1,298 MW, or one-third, of wind energy development. Quebec and Alberta follow at 663 MW and 656 MW, respectively, and Canada’s remaining seven provinces together account for the remaining one-third.
