The wind farms, named "Whispering Woods" (10 MW) and "Ganaraska" (20 MW), will be located in Southern Ontario’s Oshawa region and able to supply electricity to approximately 60,000 homes on an annual basis.
"REpower and its parent company are the third largest turbine manufacturer in the world and we are very pleased to be working with them once again," commented Dr Ingo Stuckmann, Wind Works’ President and CEO. "I was involved in ordering seventeen of these same windmills in 2007 and they are performing with over 98% technical availability. They are a proven and clean technology."
Both the Ganaraska and Whispering Woods wind parks projects have been awarded a Feed-In Tariff power purchase contract by the Ontario Power Authority and environmental studies are currently being completed for each project.
