• Northland Power and Mnidoo Mnising Power’s McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Will be Powered by 24 GE Wind Turbines;
• McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm Will Provide 60 Megawatts of Wind Power to the Ontario Grid;
• GE Will Provide around-the-Clock Innovative Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics and 10-Year Service Agreement for Operations and Maintenance.

GE (NYSE: GE) and McLean’s Mountain Wind Limited Partnership today announced that the McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, will be powered by 24 GE 2.85-103 turbines. Located in Lake Huron, Manitoulin Island is the largest freshwater island in the world. The McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm will provide 60 megawatts (MW) of power to the grid. The project is a 50/50 partnership between Northland Power Inc. (TSX: NPI) and Mnidoo Mnising Power (MMP).

“This wind farm will provide renewable energy to Ontario while respecting the environment and creating resources to strengthen the United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising communities. Recognizing the unique topography of Manitoulin island, we ultimately decided that GE’s 2.85-103 model wind turbines were the best fit to meet the project requirements,” said John Brace, CEO of Northland Power, one of Canada’s leading independent power producers.

GE will provide operations and maintenance through a 10-year full service agreement for the McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm. The facility will benefit from around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics through GE’s global wind monitoring center in Schenectady, N.Y., which also will help maximize wind turbine operating performance and life.

“GE is pleased to work with Northland Power and its partner Mnidoo Mnising Power and is committed to supporting the growth of renewable energy in Canada. As of 2013, we have installed 1.8 gigawatts of wind power in Canada, which accounts for 29 percent of Canada’s total installed base. Wind energy can continue to be an important part of Canada’s low-carbon electricity mix, complementing hydro in Quebec, surpassing coal generation in Ontario, diversifying the Alberta grid and helping to meet British Columbia’s increasing energy demands,” said Anne McEntee, president and CEO of GE’s renewable energy business.“
