Schneider Power Inc., a Toronto-based owner and developer of renewable energy projects, has finalized plans to develop three wind farms and expand a fourth wind farm in Ontario for a total cost of $90 million.

According to Schneider Power, the company will construct three 10 MW wind farms across the province: one adjacent to Highway 400 near the town of Innisfil, named the Highway 400 Wind Farm; another near the town of Arthur, the Arthur Wind Farm; and a third near the town of Trout Creek, the Trout Creek Wind Farm.

In addition to the three new projects, Schneider Power will expand its Providence Bay/Spring Bay Wind Farm on Manitoulin Island to its full capacity of 11.6 MW by the end of 2008, the company says. Collectively, these four wind farms represent a total of 41.6 MW of installed capacity and will produce 8.3 million kWh of electricity per year, which is enough to power 11,000 homes.
