Hydro-QuÃ©bec announced their wind RFP winners yesterday. It’s a huge deal for the industry; more than 2000 MW of contracts awarded, with commissioning dates ranging from 2011-2015. Enercon and REpower won all the manufacturing; strict local content requirements mean that they will have to set up shop in QuÃ©bec.
This is good for the Canadian industry. Now the real work begins.
