Pattern Energy Group LP has announced that its St. Joseph Wind project has completed construction and is now fully operational. The 138 MW wind energy project is located in the southern Manitoba community of St. Joseph.
‘The success of this project is due to the support and commitment of all those involved, including the Province of Manitoba, Mortenson Canada, local landowners and the great community of St. Joseph,’ says Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Energy.
Over the life of the project, Pattern will pay an estimated C$38 million to landholders and an additional C$44 million in local municipal taxes, with two-thirds of the tax revenue dedicated to education and one-third committed to the host communities.
Prior to completion, Pattern and Manitoba Hydro entered into a 27-year power purchase agreement for the sale of energy produced by the project.
