AltaGas Income Trust has announced that the first of 34 Enercon E-82 turbines being erected at its 102 MW Bear Mountain Wind Park was completed ahead of schedule and is delivering power into British Columbia's electrical grid.

"British Columbia has an abundant supply of clean, renewable energy, including widely distributed wind resources like those at Bear Mountain," says Blair Lekstrom, minister of energy, mines and retroleum resources.

Owned and operated by AltaGas, the C$200 million project is on track to become British Columbia's first fully operational wind park. To date, 24 of the 34 towers have been erected and are awaiting installation of the turbine blades. Scheduled for full-scale power delivery in November, the project is expected to meet or surpass that power delivery target.

Under the Government of Canada's ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program, the project will receive a C$0.01/kWh incentive over the next 10 years, in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
