Toronto-based wind developer Windstream Energy Inc. is expanding its Ontario development pipeline of wind power projects into western Canada and toward opportunities in the High Plains area of the western U.S.
Since 2005, the company has been monitoring wind resources and pursuing land lease agreements in Ontario. Windstream is now developing a portfolio of large-scale wind farms with a total capacity of over 3,000 MW.
‘With our recent expansion of operations outside Ontario and our recapitalization, we decided to rebrand our small but growing company to Windstream Energy,’ says Ian Baines, founder of Windstream Energy. ‘Our plan is to build a geographically diversified portfolio of profitable facilities, with the goals of maximizing economic spinoffs for our financial partners, local communities, Canada's First Nations and Native Americans, and providing a cleaner environment for future generations.’
Windstream has also added Mark Bell to help drive the company's projects forward. Most recently, he was director of Invenergy Canada, where he played a major role in the development of over 25 large-scale renewable energy projects across Canada.
