San Diego-based Welwind Energy International Corp. has come to an agreement with Windcor Power Systems to create a joint venture partnership on various projects located in Canada. The relationship further extends to Welwind's Peace Region wind project in British Columbia.

Approximately three years of wind data have been collected for the project, which is located in southern Alberta and has a potential generating capacity of 200 MW. Welwind has determined that the data prove favorable to build a profitable wind project at this location.

Most of the environmental work is complete and, through consultation with the public and area stakeholders, the companies say they have all of the necessary data to proceed on a successful endeavor.

"With Windcor's expertise in the Canadian green energy field and Welwind's strong financial partners, we look forward to future successes in our joint venture relationship," says Larry McNabb, president of Welwind.
