Manitoba is looking to rival Alberta as a major player in the growing Wind energy market in Canada. Westman (NRC profile).
The CBC reports on a $1.5 Billion (CAD) project with the potential to produce as much as 1400MW of electricity. Enough to power “hundreds of thousands” of homes. The first phase is slated to be operational in two years.. the final by 2011.
The Prairies are certainly *the place* for wind energy in Canada. I have no doubt this will be a successful, and very important, project. Hopefully there are many more to follow.
