Enbridge, RES Canada Celebrate Talbot Wind Project Completion


Enbridge Inc. and Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada), an affiliate of RES Americas, celebrated the completion of Enbridge's 99 MW Talbot wind project in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, yesterday. Enbridge owns the project, and RES Canada developed and constructed it.

The project created about 300 construction jobs and 10 full-time local jobs. It generated revenue for local businesses through almost C$60 million in capital expenditures and will continue to generate local revenue through about C$7 million in annual operating expenditures, according to the companies.

The project delivers energy to the Ontario Power Authority under a 20-year Renewable Energy Supply III agreement. It is also receiving an energy production incentive over the next 10 years from Natural Resources Canada's ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program.
