    enbridge-to-buy-stake-in-quebec-wind-farm

    not sure if there will be excess electricity produced and what is done with it.
    but if the grid operator tells them often enough we can't use your electricity and noone wants it and there is a pipeline in quebec .......

    Enbridge Inc., Canada’s largest oil- pipeline operator, agreed to buy a 50 percent stake in an EDF EN Canada Inc. Quebec wind farm for $170 million.

    The Massif du Sud project, consisting of 75 turbines, is expected to be completed by the end of this month and will generate enough power for 35,000 homes, Calgary-based Enbridge said in a statement Thursday.

    This is Enbridge’s second time to partner with EDF EN Canada, a subsidiary of Paris-based EDF Energies Nouvelles SA, on a wind farm in Quebec. Enbridge aims to generate a kilowatt of renewable energy for every kilowatt of conventional energy its operations consume, according to the statement.

    The projects “demonstrates Enbridge’s interest in investing in renewable infrastructure across Canada,” Don Thomspson, vice president for green energy, said in the statement.

    Hydro-Quebec will buy power from the wind farm under a 20- year agreement. EDF En Canada’s EDF Renewable Services Canada Inc. unit will provide for operations and maintenance.

    REpower Systems SE, the German unit of Pune, India-based Suzlon Energy Ltd., supplied the project’s turbines. Suzlon, India’s largest turbine maker, is expanding in Canada as the country promotes wind power to drive its economy and provide jobs.
