Gary Lunn, Canadian minister of natural resources, has announced that the Chin Chute Wind Power Project in Alberta will receive up to C$9.2 million in funding over 10 years under the ecoENERGY for Renewable Power initiative.

"Wind power is a key part of our government's strategy to find a balance between energy production and the protection of our health and the environment," says Lunn. "Funding for the Chin Chute Wind Power Project sends a clear signal that our government is committed to increasing the supply of clean, renewable energy for Canadians while helping Canada's wind power industry grow."

The Chin Chute Wind Power Project qualified for the C$0.01 per kWh incentive under the ecoENERGY initiative. The wind farm's 20 turbines are capable of generating up to 30 MW of power.

Chin Chute is owned by Suncor Energy Products Inc., Enbridge Income Fund and Acciona Wind Energy Canada Inc., which operates the facility.
