Barrington Wind Energy Limited (BWEL) affiliate Canso Windfield One Inc. has signed an agreement with Michelin North America (Canada) Inc. to provide wind power from BWEL's proposed Canso facility.

BWEL will generate power from its Canso-based wind farm project under a financial bilateral contract with Michelin. Michelin will not receive direct delivery of energy produced by the Canso wind farm project. The Canso wind farm project would sell energy to a transmission company. This contract is for 12 MW of installed capacity. Michelin and BWEL have been in discussions for more than a year to enable this project in the Town of Canso, the companies say.

Turbine acquisition is underway and an environmental impact statement has been filed, according to the companies. The initial construction phase, including some turbines, is intended to be complete in 2007, subject to a suitable finalization of project elements. BWEL anticipates that the project will be in service in 2008.
