In just over a decade, Enbridge has invested in more than 2,000 MW (gross) of wind-power capacity in North America, en route to becoming the second-largest wind energy generator in Canada.
Wind energy is one of the best choices for powering the future. It helps diminish acid rain, smog, and greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
In 2011, Enbridge entered the U.S. wind energy market with our acquisition of the 250 MW Cedar Point wind farm, in Limon Colorado. In 2014, we expanded our U.S. renewable energy footprint with three new facilities – the 110 MW Keechi Wind project, in Jack County, Texas; and our 80-per-cent interest in the 202 MW Magic Valley facility, located near Harlingen, Texas and, the 200 MW Wildcat wind farm near Elwood, Indiana.
Our 14 wind farms across North America now have a total gross generational capacity of more than 2,000 MW (more than 1,400 MW net) -- including the 300 MW Blackspring Ridge project near Lethbridge, Alta., the largest wind facility in Western Canada.
