Algonquin Power has been selected to proceed to the next phase in Manitoba Hydro's request for proposals (RFP) from Manitoba wind-powered electrical generation facilities.
Algonquin Power owns and operates St. Leon Wind Energy, a 99 MW wind farm located in and around the community of St. Leon.
Two projects totaling 165 MW submitted by affiliates of Algonquin Power have been selected for further participation in the RFP process. The two projects consist of the 99 MW Glenwood Wind Energy Project located in the municipality of Glenwood, and a 66 MW expansion of Algonquin Power's 99 MW St. Leon Wind Energy facility located in the municipalities of Pembina and Lorne.
Further participation in the RFP could include the supply of additional technical information and supplementary information to be used in the final evaluation process, according to Algonquin. A successful next phase of the RFP process would see Algonquin Power engaging in power purchase agreement negotiations with Manitoba Hydro.
