Brookfield Renewable Power Inc. (Brookfield Renewable) has received a 20-year power contract from the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) for its Gosfield wind project located in southwestern Ontario. Gosfield Wind Limited Partnership, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brookfield Renewable, intends to build, own and operate a 50 megawatt (MW) wind power facility in the Town of Kingsville in Essex county, Ontario.

Brookfield Renewable Power has received most environmental and municipal approvals for the Gosfield Wind Project. After completion, the project is expected to produce enough renewable power for 15,000 homes annually.

This announcement is a result of the Ontario Power Authority’s third Request for Proposals (RFP) for new, renewable energy projects.

“Wind power is an integral part of Brookfield Renewable Power’s business strategy and we are pleased to have the opportunity to build another renewable energy project in the province of Ontario,” said Harry Goldgut, Chairman, Brookfield Renewable Power. “We have been working in this region since 2002, have enjoyed great relationships with local stakeholders, and we look forward to continuing to work with them.”
