The federal government recently announced investment of more than $53 million in funding, over 10 years, for the largest wind energy project in Canada. The Prince Wind Energy Farm, situated on 20,000 acres of land northwest of Sault St. Marie, Ontario, qualified for the 1 cent per kilowatt-hour incentive under the Eco Energy for Renewable Power Initiative. The wind farm's 126 turbines are capable of generating up to 189 megawatts of clean, renewable power, enough to power nearly 40,000 homes. The approximately $400 million project took a little over 12 months to construct and has been operating for about one year. The Prince Wind Energy Farm is owned by Brookfield Power.
