NextEra Energy Canada ULC says its affiliate, Conestogo Wind LP, has completed and brought into service its 22.9 MW Conestogo Wind Energy Centre.

The project, located in Wellington County, Ontario, comprises 10 Siemens wind turbines. All of the power from the project is being sold to the Ontario Power Authority under the province's feed-in-tariff program. Conestogo Wind, an indirect subsidiary of NextEra Energy Canada, owns and operates the project.

The Conestogo Wind Energy Centre is the first of eight wind projects that NextEra Energy Canada plans to bring into service by the end of 2015 in Ontario. Combined, NextEra Energy Canada's eight Ontario wind projects represent a capital investment in the province of approximately C$1.5 billion.
