Canada’s wind energy industry has surpassed 10-GW of installed wind energy capacity.

The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) said that, with the commissioning of the K2 Wind Power Project in Ontario earlier this month, the country is now the 7th country in the world to surpass 10,000-MW of installed capacity.

CanWEA said wind turbines are operating in every province in Canada, and in the Northwest Territories and Yukon. The organization also said that Canada’s wind capacity has increased by an average of 1,300-MW, or 24 percent, every year.
