NB Power has released a request for proposals (RFP) for the purchase of up to 300 MW of wind-powered generation by November 2010 from potential private-sector developers.

According to the company, this RFP accelerates NB Power's original plan to have 400 MW of wind power online by 2016. NB Power will purchase the energy from areas experiencing high winds, including the Bay of Fundy, Tantramar, Miramichi Bay, Acadie/Chaleur and inland New Brunswick. NB Power will evaluate the proposals based on pricing, schedule for development, yearly production, reliability of supply and added New Brunswick content, the company adds.

Deadline: July 31, 2007
