Bridgepoint Secures Ontario-based Development Equity for Large Ontario Wind Power Plant

When built, the wind energy project will be one of the largest onshore wind farms in the country. The wind turbines project is currently awaiting a Feed in Tariff (FIT) Program contract by the Ontario Power Authority, the Province’s power procurement agency.

The FIT program provides renewable energy developers with a 20 year power purchase agreement and is a key component of the Province’s Green Energy Act.

"We are extremely proud to have worked with the project team to secure Ontario-based development equity to finance this large project", noted Frank Carnevale, President & CEO of Bridgepoint Group Ltd. "Development equity is the most difficult to raise in these projects, and thanks to The Green Energy Act, this project will provide future generations with the necessary investments needed to create a modern power system, at the right price".

"The team worked hard over the past year to mitigate risks and move the project towards a contract award. Additionally, this represents an exceptional economic opportunity for the Region in which it will be located", noted Georges Arbache, Associate Vice-President.
