Plutonic Power Corp. and GE Energy Financial Services have achieved commercial operation at their second major renewable energy project, the Dokie Wind project, located in British Columbia. The project is providing energy to BC Hydro under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
During 13 months of construction, GE and managing partner Plutonic oversaw the erection of 43 wind turbines, construction of an electric substation and installation of 7 km of transmission lines.
More than 200 construction and permanent jobs were created to finish the C$228 million project – Plutonic's and GE Energy Financial Services' first Canadian wind farm. The project, which is located 1,100 km northeast of Vancouver, is capable of generating up to 340,000 MWh per year.
The Dokie General Partnership has met all of the precedent conditions contained under the ecoEnergy Renewable Power program. Accordingly, the Dokie General Partnership expects to receive the C$10/MWh grant on all energy sales for a 10-year period.
