Kingsbridge I Wind Power Project

EPCOR's Kingsbridge I Wind Power Project recently reached a milestone when two completed turbines generated electricity to Ontario's electrical grid system for the first time. To date, six Kingsbridge I turbines are online and producing power.

Twenty-one of 22 turbines have now been erected in the 40 megawatt project. Completion and energization of additional turbines will continue through the upcoming weeks, as construction continues on the project that is located in the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh.

"This is a milestone in our commitment to delivering an environmentally responsible power supply for Ontarians and Canadians," said Paul McMillan, Senior Vice President, EPCOR Ontario. "We especially appreciate the community's support as we work towards the completion of Kingsbridge I and on getting Kingsbridge II started."

EPCOR remains on-track to meet its commitment to the provincial government to have Kingsbridge I running by the end of the second quarter of 2006.
