A record 444 MW of wind energy was produced in Ontario in 2011 - up substantially from the 319 MW produced in 2010, according to data from the Independent Electricity System Operator.
November 2011 marked the highest monthly wind output ever seen in Ontario, with production in that month alone exceeding 0.56 TWh. For the entire year, wind generation represented 2.6 percent of the province’s total output.
In addition, a record capacity of new wind energy projects was commissioned in all of Canada last year. More than 5 GW of wind energy projects are already contracted to be built over the next five years. Canada is now ranked ninth globally in terms of total installed wind energy capacity.
