With an estimated capital cost of C$450 million, this 197.8 MW project is under construction. The target commercial operation date is March 31. Under the ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program, the Wolfe Island Wind Project will receive a $10 per MWh incentive over the next 10 years, in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
