Zero Emission Energy Developments (ZED) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with REpower Systems Inc. for the supply of wind turbines for each of ZED's five wind power generation projects across British Columbia.

ZED's projects are located on Crown Land - one in the Peace River Regional District and the other four further south in the Thompson-Nicola and Okanagan-Similkameen Regional Districts. Each project has a nameplate capacity of 15 MW for a total rated output of 75 MW. ZED anticipates construction of these projects will begin in the fourth quarter of this year.

"We are very pleased to have been selected by ZED for these projects across British Columbia," states Helmut Herold, CEO and managing director of REpower Systems Inc. "This marks our entry into western Canada after successes in Ontario and Quebec."
