Windstream Wolfe Island Shoals Inc., a subsidiary of Windstream Energy LLC, has been awarded a feed-in-tariff contract by the Ontario Power Authority to develop an offshore wind project.

The 300 MW site is located west of Wolfe Island, Ontario, on approximately 48,000 acres of shallow-water shoals.

"Wolfe Island is one of the windiest areas of the province and has proven local support for wind development," says Ian Baines, president of Windstream Energy. "Our project is close to the Lennox Thermal Station and will offset the use of fossil fuels by providing power generated by the abundant winds of Lake Ontario."

Windstream Energy was also advised that its 10 onshore projects, totaling 745 MW, have been placed in the economic connection test queue for future review. The first test is scheduled for the fall.
