Acciona Wind Energy Canada Inc., a renewable energy project developer and affiliate of Acciona S.A., and Suncor Energy Products Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Suncor Energy Inc., have started construction on a 76 MW wind farm located near Ripley, Ontario.

Foundations for the 38 2 MW Enercon wind turbines are now being poured. Pending weather conditions, construction will take a brief break during the winter months and is expected to be complete this summer, with the project commissioning scheduled for late 2007.

The wind farm is located on the eastern shores of Lake Huron in Huron-Kinloss township, approximately 220 kilometers (km) west of Toronto and 140 km north of London. The project is expected to have the capacity to power 24,000 homes and offset 66,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year.

In addition, Suncor and Acciona will submit an application for funding from the Canadian government's recently announced ecoEnergy Renewable Power Initiative, which supports wind power development in Canada. (See "Wind Power To Benefit From Canadian ecoEnergy Initiative.")
