Pattern Development Completes 185-MW Wind Project in British Columbia

LCG, February 28, 2017--Pattern Energy Group LP ("Pattern Development") yesterday announced the completion of its 184.6 MW Meikle Wind power project located in British Columbia.

Main construction on the project commenced in June 2015.

The CEO of Pattern Development stated, "Meikle Wind is now the largest wind facility in British Columbia, increasing the installed wind power capacity in the province by 37 percent. Located in a mountainous region, this project was unique for its construction, design and weather challenges, as well as for our discovery of rare dinosaur tracks during construction, which we donated to the Tumbler Ridge Museum."

The Meikle Wind project is comprised of 61 GE wind turbines, and the facility has a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with BC Hydro. The facility will be managed by 16 operations and maintenance personnel, together with a variety of local subcontractors.
