AWEA Issues Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report

LCG, February 7, 2020--The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) recently released its new U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report. AWEA reports new wind turbine installations have added 5,476 MW of electric generating capacity during the fourth quarter, which results in 2019 installations totaling 9,143 MW. The total installations represent an increase over 2018, but the total for 2019 falls short of total annual installations for 2015 and 2016. In addition to new capacity additions, developers completed 2,500 MW of turbine repowerings for the year.

EPCOR Expands Wind Farm Potential in Ontario

LCG, April 22, 2005--EPCOR has reached an agreement to acquire Port Albert Wind Farms, Ltd. (PAWF), including the development and interconnection rights for more than 270 MW of electric generation derived from the wind along the western shores of Lake Huron.

In Ontario, EPCOR is already constructing the Kingsbridge Wind Power Project that is scheduled to commence operations in late 2005 or early 2006. The 39.6-MW project, located near Goderich, is adjacent to most of the development rights acquired from PAWF.

The Kingsbridge Wind Power Project was selected last November by the Ontario Ministry of Energy following the release of the Ontario government's Request for Proposals (RFP) for renewable energy supplies earlier last year. New energy supplies are critical to the Province of Ontario, which has already committed to closing 7,600 MW of coal-fired generating capacity - including the 1,140-MW Lakeview Generating Station this month - by 2008 in order to improve air quality.
