Canada reaches low point for new wind

The installed new capacity in the North American country reached its lowest level since 2005. With new prices of CAD 37/MWh, the expansion will go up again, predicts wind energy association.  

Canadians have a reputation of being optimistic and friendly people. This seems to hold true for the president of the country's wind energy association CanWEA, Robert Hornung, who sums-up last year's performance in the market.

"From Nova Scotia to British Columbia, wind once again proved in 2017 that it is a reliable, scalable solution to climate change that is delivering low-cost energy and local economic benefits to communities across Canada.  We’re pleased to be delivering clean and affordable energy to Canadians," he says in a press release.
