That would represent close to a four billion dollar investment and, would create three thousand jobs, placing BC among the countries leaders in wind energy generation.

Canadian Wind Energy Association President, Robert Hornung says, “Our members have been anxiously awaiting this opportunity and are ready to respond”.
