Wind energy continues strong growth in Canada in 2016

Wind energy continues strong growth in Canada in 2016

“More wind energy has been built in Canada in the last 11 years than any other form of electricity generation, and for good reason,” said Robert Hornung, President of CanWEA. “Costs for wind energy have fallen dramatically over the past seven years, making wind energy one of Canada’s two most cost-competitive sources of new electricity supply. And unlike natural gas, wind energy is not impacted by carbon prices or commodity price fluctuations, meaning that wind energy will only become more affordable over time. The fact that the vast majority of new wind energy projects built in Canada in 2016 had some form of local ownership demonstrates the value of wind not only as a driver of economic growth, but also as a source of local jobs and revenue in communities right across the country.”
