Pattern pops cork at Meikle
184.6MW wind farm in British Columbia comprises GE hardware
Pattern Energy has completed the 184.6MW Meikle wind farm in British Columbia.
The project comprises 61 GE turbines – a mix of 3.2MW-103 and 2.75MW-120 machines – and has a 25-year power purchase agreement with BC Hydro.
It is expected to generate $70m in payments for property taxes, Crown lease payments, wind participation rent and community benefits over the first 25 years of operations.
Pattern Development chief executive Mike Garland said: “Meikle Wind is now the largest wind facility in British Columbia, increasing the installed wind power capacity in the province by 37%.”
